I also worked in a speakeasy….sort of. Trouble is, I worked there in the 1970s, forty some years after the repeal of the 18th amendment. It was a dental manufacturing company in downtown Chicago. But it was once a very secretive speakeasy. Every morning the operator would carry me up in the manned, vintage, hand-cranked elevator to the 4th floor where the door still had a sliding peep hole.
I loved it when Hulda went through her flapper girl stages in the Detroit speakeasies. I could see in my head what she might have looked like and the following pictures will probably not do her justice, but it gives an idea.
As Hulda might say, “ojej, I just can’t wait for the next book.”
Juniper and Anise by Marion L. Cornett is published by Whiskey Creek Press
From the Author’s Own Words:
My passion is history during the early 1900s and doing research to gain more insight and knowledge prompted me to compile these two self-published books. And now, I'm onto more writing, with the recently-released Juniper and Anise, a fictional story based on events that took place during the United States' Prohibition Era. While working on Juniper and Anise, I began thinking about other villagers. And now, work is in progress of a companion novel, tentatively entitled Tilly Loves Johnny.
When I'm not writing, my day job is commercial embroidery, which I've done for nearly 20 years. Love to read, write, exercise, socialize, and be a part of the internet social media.
“Born to be creative, loves to write--that's my motto.”
