About the Author:
B. Berry’s latest novel, CLOTHESLINE BLUES is based on the Black Movement during the sixties at the time of Bloody Sunday. The story is an important one and tells a story of murder in the background of an extremely tumultuous time in American history.
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 stepfather 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.
B. Berry lives in Florida where she writes full-time. Ms. Berry enjoys quiet walks on the beach, reading cozy mysteries and working on many crafts.

Authors on the Air host Pam Stack welcome author/jounalist SHANE GERICKE to tonight's show. At age 7, Santa delivered my first typewriter, a heavy, clunky, and absolutely glorious rocket ship to the moon. I’ve been writing ever since.I spent 25 years as a newspaper editor and reporter, writing about everything from football games to Liberace concerts to a bearded local nudist who ran for President.I left my guaranteed newspaper paycheck for the heady world of crime fiction..After writing two manuscripts that never did sell, I wrote Blown Away, intending it to be a little cop drama set in the suburbs of Chicago..Blown Away was named debut mystery of the year by RT Book Reviews, and hit the Barnes & Noble national bestseller list. (Later on, it became a No. 1 bestseller on Kindle.) I followed that with Cut to the Bone, then Torn Apart, I help run the ThrillerFest literary conference in New York City and its PitchFest author-agent match program.

Authors on the Air host Pam Stack is proud to welcome Peg Brantley, writer and blogger, to the studio. About Ms. Brantley : A Colorado native, Peg Brantley is a member of Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers and Sisters In Crime. She and her husband make their home southeast of Denver, and have shared it with the occasional pair of mallard ducks and their babies, snapping turtles, peacocks, assorted other birds, foxes, a deer named Cedric and a bichon named McKenzie.
A note from Peg: When I was almost finished writing the first draft of THE MISSINGS, a character came into the story. I only intended him for a very small role. Instead, he threatened to derail the entire story and take it over. He was that strong, and I was that close to finishing. It was a battle. I promised him his own book if he would just back off. He did, and Mex Anderson got to play a much bigger role in THE SACRIFICE. Beginning with my second book, I've tried to lightly touch on a social issue. My hope is that it could bring about some discussion, maybe even shed a little different perspective. With THE MISSINGS, it was illegal immigration and organ donation. With THE SACRIFICE, it's living with depression.

Canadian born but California based author, Mar Preston, expertly takes us by the hand and guides our imagination in her Santa Monica, police procedural novel, On Behalf Of The Family. Detective Dave Mason deftly, but doggedly, tracks down the 'honor' killer of a wealthy Turkish family living the American Dream in a sunny seaside city.
Shannon Celebi writes speculative fiction in all its weird and wonderful forms. Residing in Ashland, Oregon with her husband, her son, two neurotic cats, and a dilapidated laptop named Persephone, Shannon has two collections of short stories, Small Town Ghosts, and Small Town Demons, available on Amazon at http://amzn.to/19lodTU.
Shannon spends every waking hour at her computer, but if she gets a brief moment of respite you can usually find her curled up on the sofa with a kick-ass book and a steaming mug of Joe (Sumatra from Starbucks is her favorite). Shannon also enjoys windsurfing (not), hang-gliding (super not) and long walks on the beach (maybe).
Shannon has far too many favorite books to list in this little space, but if she had to pick three, she'd probably say, "This Body by Laurel Doud, Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte, and Heart Shaped Box' by Joe Hill." Of course, she couldn't pick just three, so she'd also name, The Song of Ice and Fire series by George R. R. Martin, The Shining by Stephen King, and Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn.
