Hi! My name is Skye Denison. I’m a school psychologist in Scumble River, a small town seventy-five miles south of Chicago nearly seventy-five years behind the times. Although I left town as soon as I turned eighteen and stayed away for the next twelve years, I eventually returned, and now that I’ve been back for a while, I realize that Scumble River is indeed home. I still miss some of the diversity of the big city, but I’ve made my peace and have no plans to leave ever again—except for brief periods of time like my honeymoon.
