Thank you to all of those who believed in me and encouraged me. Today I received a contract for the Bleeding Willows series by Limitless Publishing. It’s my first truly fictional book..not based on anyone or any event…just pure fiction. I’ve learned so much in the penning of this book and am busy at work on book 2! Stay tuned for future Bleeding Willows news!
Growing up on the south side of Chicago, I remember hearing tales of devil worshippers heading to Bachelor’s Grove Cemetery to pay their respects to Satan. It creeped me out, yet I was also very curious and wanted to investigate. This autumn I’ve decided I will visit the cemetery and will update when I do.
I did NOT take these photos. They come from this website: https://brothertom.wordpress.com/category/graves/
But this abandoned and haunted cemetery has inspired the setting for Between the Bleeding Willows, my current work-in-progress novel. Cassidy, the main character, lives in Homer Glen, IL, as I did growing up. She will find her life forever changed when she wanders into the cemetery. Welcome to Bachelor’s Grove!
