Welcome and General Discussion / Re: RIP Sheila Connolly

Becke, I don't read all that fast anymore either. I used to read a lot during down time at work but since I'm so busy right now there, the only reading I do is on my lunch break.

And when I get home from work, I'm usually so beat that I don't want to read a lot because I'm so tired. I power through sometimes but I find I do a lot of my extended reading on the weekends right now.

I did the most reading when I commuted to work by bus and train. Train was the best, except when I got too engrossed in whatever I was reading and missed my stop!

Huh - I have no idea how to insert a pic, or I would give you the real Birdy! I tried dragging one in, but that didn't work. If you can tell me how, I will try.

Anyway, I so much appreciate the support and cheers from both Jay and Becke this month. I'm delighted you love my stories and are willing to share them with others.

All my best, and much gratitude,

Edith/Maddie

Edith - Is there a photo of your original Birdy online someplace? If not, send me an image on Facebook Messenger and I'll share it here for you.

Also, thank you so much for being our very first FEATURED AUTHOR!

I'm sorry I couldn't persuade more people to join the conversation. Hopefully we've made some of the people who viewed these threads curious enough to check out your books!

Edith, this is from your website: "“The Stonecutter,” possibly Edith’s favorite piece of short fiction, is a murder story of middle-aged romance gone wrong in an increasingly dark New England fall. The story first appeared in Fish Nets: the Second Guppy Anthology, an anthology of crime stories (Wildside Press, April, 2013)." 

What was it about "The Stonecutter" that made it a favorite of yours?


I guess I liked the way the language flowed in that story, and how it got darker with the daylight diminishing through the fall. Thanks for asking!

I have always been a big fan of mystery short stories, so I'm very much looking forward to adding yours to my collection!

I was at my B&N today and MURDER AT THE TAFFY SHOP was on the shelves there.

Yay! Hopefully they will still have it at my B&N by the time I get there!

They had it and now I've got it! I was disappointed they didn't have any of the Edith Maxwell titles, though.

I hope you requested that they stock them, Becke! Maybe they are out because they've been closed for so long.

That could be. I did ask for help finding your books - they had rearranged the mystery shelves so now there is a whole section for cozies! I'll check again next time I go there.
