Katrina Anne Willis

Wife of one, mother of four, I am a writer, reader, friend, runner (slow and steady wins the race), and avid red wine consumer. I'm currently the "Mom Blogger" for Indy's Child magazine and author of "Table for Six: The Extraordinary Tales of an Ordinary Family." Over the past couple of years, I've been honored as a 2011 Midwest Writers Fellow and was a finalist in the 2012 Notes & Words Essay contest (brain child of the indomitable Kelly Corrigan). I love my family, my friends, my cozy pillow, Brooks running shoes, Dave Matthews, homemade pesto, and Apothic Red more than anyone will ever know. XO

This is a stunning, powerfully written story. Katrina somehow captures in words an experience there are no words to describe. Beautiful writing, as always, Katrina Anne Willis!

I again am transmitted to where Katrina has pinned. The pages flew by as I read and felt the anguish of the family. Touche, Katrina, for another amazing story!

A real work of art that is filled with emotion. You can't believe such a big tale can be told in such a small space. Well done and ready for the big time!
