Illinois Connection

I grew up in Carlinville, Illinois, moving to Hettick, Illinois when I married at the age of twenty-three. I have lived in Hettick (my husband's hometown) for thirty-two years. My nonfiction revolves around the small-town experience of both these areas, including family members and a few "interesting" characters from my childhood. Two fiction pieces (one unpublished sci-fi in novella length) contain references to Carlinville and Springfield, including WYMG and radio personality Liz Willis.
