When Jo was buying a house, the fact that Villisca was known for a 1912 unsolved ax murder made the town a more attractive option. That says a lot about her.
Jo went on to buy that crooked Victorian house, and hopes someday to have it renovated enough that she can start over and re-renovate it.

husband, brother, mother, and even her father. It’s a good thing the house has lots of bedrooms! This multi-generational household sort-of works, and when everyone is getting along and working together Jo has time to work on important things like her paranormal vampire series, or her paper dolls, or book covers for other authors, or even some for fun photography.
