LISTEN: Storyteller Joanne Saxon Hill, aka Sister Saxon, On Sweets And Secrets
Joanne Saxon Hill lives in Peculiar, Missouri, but her writing is rooted in the South.
A novelist and short story writer, Saxon Hill grew up in Alabama in a strict religious family — an upbringing that, at times, was isolating. But she says, she's always been "tuned to life's quirkiness."
Saxon Hill, who goes by the name Sister Saxon, incorporates bits of memory, overheard conversations, and imagination into her stories, like The Affliction.
