Story Round-Up: Features in The Herald-News, Oct. 4 through Oct. 9

So this was a nice shout-out to my story on Joliet Area Community Hospice volunteers. I would never have seen this if a bank teller hadn't mentioned it to me last week: Rarely, do I receive such public thanks. It felt good.

Wonder what I do when I'm not writing fiction? Well, here ya go!

Below are cover stories and the link to the feature briefs and event calendars, which I write/edit. The fourth calendar, Gotta Do It, runs each Sunday and often stays on the home page through the week.
