WWK is proud of our four Agatha nominees. Kaye George for Best Short Story--not her first time to be nominated, Connie Berry and Grace Topping for Best First Mystery Novel (wish they weren't having to compete against each other), and Annette Dashofy for Best Contemporary Novel--her fifth nomination!


Congratulations to our writers for the following publications:

Look for Kaye George and Margaret S. Hamilton's short stories in the new Mid-Century Murder by Darkhouse Books. Kaye's story is "Life and Death on the Road" and Margaret's story is titled "4BR/3.5BA Contemporary."


Kaye George's first novel in the Vintage Sweets mystery series, Revenge is Sweet, will be released on March 10th. Look for the interview here on March 11.


Grace Topping's second novel in Laura Bishop staging series, Staging Wars, will be released by Henery Press on April 28th. Look for the interview here on April 29th.


Don't miss Shari Randall's "The Queen of Christmas" available on at Amazon. Shari's holiday story for WWK was too long so she published it for our enjoyment. It's available for 99 cents or on Kindle Unlimited for free!


KM Rockwood's "The Society" and "To Die A Free Man; the Story of Joseph Bowers" are included in the BOULD Awards Anthology, which was released on November 19. KM won second place with a cash prize for "The Society." Congratulations, KM! Kaye George's "Meeting on the Funicular" is also in this anthology, which can be bought for 99 cents on Kindle until November 30.


Shari Randall will be writing again for St. Martin's, perhaps under a pseudonym. We look forward to reading Shari's Ice Cream Shop Mystery series debuting next year. Congratulations, Shari!

I’m Wondering Why by Warren Bull


I’m Wondering Why by Warren Bull

Why do peanuts float in a regular coke and sink in diet coke? 

Go ahead and try it.

I used to eat a lot of natural foods until I learned that most 
people die of natural causes.

Can you cry underwater?

How important does a person have to be before they are 
considered "assassinated" instead of just "murdered"?

Why do you have to "put your two cents in"... but it's only a "penny for your thoughts"? Where's that extra penny going?

Once you're in heaven, do you get stuck wearing the clothes you were buried in for eternity?

What disease did cured ham actually have?

How is it that we put a man on the moon before we figured out it would be a good idea to put wheels on luggage?

Why is it that people say they "slept like a baby" when babies wake up like every two hours?

If a deaf person has to go to court, is it still called a hearing?

Why are you IN a movie, but you're ON TV?

Why do people pay to go up tall buildings and then put money in binoculars to look at things on the ground?

Why do doctors leave the room while you change? They're 
going to see you naked anyway.

Why is "bra" singular and "panties" plural?

Why do toasters always have a setting that burns the toast 
to a horrible crisp, which no decent human would eat?

Can a hearse carrying a corpse drive in the carpool lane?

If the professor on Gilligan's Island can make a radio out of 
a coconut, why can't he fix a hole in a boat?

If corn oil is made from corn, and vegetable oil is made from 
vegetables, what is baby oil made from?

If electricity comes from electrons, does morality come from 
morons?

Why do the Alphabet song and Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star 
have the same tune?

Why did you just try singing the two songs above?

Did you ever notice that when you blow in a dog's face, he 
gets mad at you, but when you take him for a car ride, he 
sticks his head out the window?

How did the person who made the first clock, 
know what time it was?

How famous do you have to be in order to be described as a 
chronic alcoholic rather than just an alcoholic?

Why do bakers get one extra is a “baker’s dozen?”


How come lawyer’s briefs are anything but brief?


If not wearing underwear is going commando, is not
wearing anything at all going ninja?

I can actually answer one. Baker's dozen came about because, in England, the penalties for a baker shortchanging customers were so severe, the baker would often throw in an extra, just to be sure the minimum weight was met.

Thanks, KM for the answer. Carla, science is mysterious.
