B. Berry has created some amazing characters in Clothesline Blues. They display the emotions
we have all felt from time to time; love, passion, hate. The sisterhood that is shown between
neighbors Hilda and Pearl is deeply human, respectful, trusting and something we all want in our lives. Ms. Berry's backdrop of the turbulent sixties comes to the forefront of the page time and again, enriching the humanity of those who lived through it, while opening the eyes of a new generation to what really occurred during the civil rights era. This novel is one that should be required reading in schools and is destined for the best-sellers list.
Bloody Sunday was an event in history that rocked the world as black people fought for the
right to vote in America on the fringes of the Jim Crow Era. Hilda and Frank lived together in a small New England town. The couple had been relatively happy for many years, but when Frank’s discontentment caused him to become mean and abusive, Hilda knew it was time to make a major change in her life. She yielded to the advances of a younger man who was head of a chapter of the Black Movement Coalition. Hilda was determined to be with him and after many sleepless nights, she came up with a solution – she would get rid of Frank. She enlisted the help of Pearl, her best friend and neighbor. Although Pearl battled her own demons, she vowed to stick by her friend…no matter what. Bonded by secrets, lies and murder, it’s hard to imagine two women will find the peace and happiness they so desperately seek...or is it?
When Hilda's love for Frank wanes and finally fades into dust, she becomes desperate to get rid of him, but she can think of only one way to escape the brute of a man. She devises a plan and with the help of her best friend Pearl, they pull off the impossible. In 1965, on the fringes of the Jim Crow days and the building tension of Bloody Sunday swirling around in the background, their world is turned upside down as secrets, lies and even murder fall out, threatening their very lives. Will these two women find the peace they so desperately seek?
Mary E., and her team welcome B. Berry to ArtSees Diner Radio, Author's Corner. Berry is celebrating the release of an outstanding new release, "Clothesline Blues."
In addition to CLOTHESLINE BLUES, B. Berry has written two murder mysteries, using Boston, Massachusetts as the backdrop. COLD CRAZY is a story of a young beautiful nurse who has been brutally and senselessly murdered. COLD SERIAL is about a serial killer who is terrorizing young women.
Although B. Berry prefers to write about murder, her first book, EVEN NUMBERS is a story of a young girl who was molested by her father and then ultimately raised by him. She would like to keep the subject of child molestation and child rape in the forefront of our minds.

HOST BIG RAY
What is depression? Why does it affect us? Most of us suffer a least a bout of depression throughout our lives, and in same cases the consequences can be devastating.
Mood changes, low self-esteem, feelings of worthlessness and sense of loss and doom plague those that suffer it, and even, in severe cases, suicide thoughts and attempts.
Depression affects each individual differently and not even doctors are very clear what the causes may be. In same cases it maybe loss and devastation, familial tendencies and alcohol or drug abuse; but sometimes even boredom and frustration may set somebody off. Anybody is susceptible to it, any of us may suffer from it.
Whatever the cause, the important part is to get over depression and never to fall back in to it again. Different individuals take different approaches, from medication and therapy, to heavy exercise, hypnosis, traveling or change of lifestyle.
My guest this week, Tameika McPhaul, decided that she was going to help herself. She realized that glamour could help her get her confidence back, and she set to work on herself and make the best of her life. The plan worked for her and she got back on her feet. She is happy now and wanting to share her success. She has written a book and is helping other women overcome their blues.
Please join us Tuesday September 16th at 8PM PST for a chat about overcoming depression and staying happy and healthy.

September 18 - Jazz Vocalist - Dee Daniels
Dee Daniels’ musical career is as varied as her four-octave vocal range is thrilling. She is a unique talent who transcends musical borders when she brings her jazz styling, infused with gospel and blues flavoring, to the stage.
Her vocal style was born in her stepfather’s church choir in Oakland, California, refined through the R&B era, polished during a five-year stay in The Netherlands and Belgium from 1982 to 1987, and brought to full fruition upon her return to North America. During those years to the present, she has performed and recorded with many ‘Legends of Jazz’ including Toots Thielemans, Houston Person, Clark Terry, Lionel Hampton, Monty Alexander, John Clayton, and Jeff Hamilton, Hank Jones, Bill Mays, Dennis MacKrel, Bucky Pizzarelli, Ken Peplowski, and Russell Malone - to mention a few.
Dee has just released her newest project, Intimate Conversations, and it is nothing less than stellar. Please join me and my very special guest for what I know will be an interesting, entertaining, and just a good old time!
