Detective Fiction: The Devil is in the Details

Ever since Edgar Allan Poe wrote "The Murders in the Rue Morgue" in 1841, starting a new trend in fiction, countless readers have enjoyed stories of unsolved crime. From Sir Arthur Conan Doyle to contemporary authors such as Cormac McCarthy and Walter Mosley, detective, or crime fiction, has evolved in technique and style, but can it truly be labeled a genre?

Northrop Frye explained the difficulty of defining genres. He claimed that "the basis of generic distinctions in…

Local Librarians rock!

Time spent with the Anne Arundel County Public Library annual Staff Day was a high point of my year. Nothing could top giving a well-received speech to 240 lovers of the written word, but signing almost a book a minute during the half-hour break after my talk came very close. Several of them stayed for a writing workshop after lunch, and that was kinda fun too!

Blessings, Bullets, and Bad Bad Men

            I like Westerns that are really just updated stories of knights or samurais. A lot of the old Spaghetti Westerns were those kinds of stories. Clint Eastwood’s man with no name in A Fist Full of Dollars was such a hero. He rides into town in the first act to see injustice, and by the end, he has vanquished the evil. I’m not giving anything away here. Everyone knows it’s going to happen. So many of those cowboys riding about in fiction are really just knights, and I love…

Local Book Club rocks!!

I had a wonderful time at the Black Authors & Readers Rock Weekend, put on by the Reading Divas book club. A highlight was being on a panel with NY Times Bestseller Mary Monroe, but there were too many others to recount. Friday’s reception. Powerful readings. A great lunch. A hundred avid readers and a few authors doing The Wooble. Don’t take my word for it. The event was covered very well in an article in The Examiner. …

Violent Death of Infant Results in Only a Ninety-Day Sentence

How much prison time should be considered appropriate for the murder of an infant?  Yes, there must be consideration for intent, maliciousness, premeditation of this act . . . but what is the ballpark?  Five years?  Ten years?  Twenty?  Maybe life?

Well, how about ninety days in prison for the death of a six-month-old girl?  That is the sentence handed down to a teen dad in Colorado after…

Why Do We Cringe at Terrible Sounds?

Fingernails slowly dragged down a chalkboard, a shrieking woman, or that high-pitch sound of a drill makes us cringe on the spot and cower in disgust.  Even pressing your hands against your ears does not seem to help.  Okay, I admit it, I like to find weird and unusual science stuff in addition to my crime…
