Jellico native Chasity Bowlin might be able to thank a case of the H1N1 flu for helping her publish her first novel, The Haunting of a Duke.
“I caught swine flu. I was quarantined in my house for 11 days, and on my third day I ran out of things to read,” she said. “And I’d been writing for years, and I just dug back on the files on my laptop and reading some of the things I had written, and it just kind of sparked my interest again.”
That was August 2010. By the time Bowlin was ready to go back to work, half of the book was on paper.
