Story Round-Up: Features in The Herald-News, Week of February 15, 2015

It's been a busy week, and it's not done yet! (WHEW!)

So when I'm not writing vampire tales (which is most of the time), here's how I spend the majority of my writing hours:

Joliet area residents rebuild their lives following the deaths of their spouses

If I would have to point to any one story and say, "I am damn proud of it," it would be this one. The openness and willingness to share that these people had blew my mind and is scarcely represented here.

True love's touch revives Lockport woman

For those that believe in fairy tale endings...and especially for those that do not...

An Extraordinary Life: Former Joliet Junior College program director went above and beyond for her students

It's one thing to connect people with resoures. It's another to babysit their infants while you're trying to do your own job so they can get to class.

Joliet Junior College interior design students redecorate for MorningStar Mission in Joliet

Proof that secondhand doesn't equal secondclass, if it's done right.

Plainfield Congregational UCC and new pastor happy to  have found each other

Meet the new minister at this church. He has a variety of interests, and he uses them all in the best interests of his people.

Company with Lemont ties graces merchandise with artwork created by those with special needs

One cool thing is that this company was founded by - and is run by - men in their very early 20s. The second cool thing is that the work, from artwork to printing to packaging, is done via the special needs community.
