B.A.L. McMillan is a Missouri writer originally from Gravel Hill and Delta area but also Cape Girardeau, a Mississippi River town. She had a rural upbringing, but, a voracious reader, traveled through imagination. Since her childhood was peopled with storytellers, she’s fond of local mysteries and beliefs. An adherent of traditional values, she wants good to triumph in her works and through them to encourage love of our fellow man, and forgiveness. But she also wants to tell a good story. Her primary characters at the moment are Galway Evans and Letitia Dunbar. She thinks of them as close friends and tunes in on what they’re doing. When it’s leading to a story, she tags along and writes it up. She also writes of witches and angels. In those pieces, she often scares herself.
