Janice Votsmier author of "Flashes from a Hot Momma" is dressed in her hillbilly formal for the Ozarks Writers League awards banquet. I told her I was just going to tell everyone that Missouri Hot Mommas always wear tiaras and dress in glitz. Janice's story follows Marie through a day where she deals with her hot flashes by spending extra time in the frozen food aisle--at least until the store manager makes her get out of the freezer. And, she is really HOT when she tries on a sexy silk gown.
About the Author: Janice Havlik Votsmier was born in Berwyn, Illinois, just west of downtown Chicago and grew up in a Czech family and neighborhood. She met her husband of forty-four years when they were juniors in high school. Never having liked the cold Chicago winters they settled in Houston, Texas, where they remained for the next thirty years. After raising a son and a daughter, she joined her husband in his insurance agency. Getting ready for semi-retirement sparked an interest to move to a cooler climate and Arkansas proved to be a nice half-way point between families. New hobbies include gardening, fishing and writing. Janice has written several children’s short stories for her youngest grandchild and is now venturing out into a wider variety of stories.
