Kasey Kennedy is an Illinois gal through and through. She grew up in Central Illinois, finished college at Southern Illinois University Carbondale and soon after, moved to Chicago. She’s been in Chicago or the surrounding suburbs ever since.

Kasey is very happily married to her husband Tim and loves nothing more than spending time with him - especially when that involves live music! If not attending a live show, they are usually listening to music; visiting their large families; watching movies; or planning their next trip.

When not dreaming up new characters and new stories, Kasey is reading or planning what to read next. Occasionally, she pulls out the guitar that she has been trying to learn for 30+ years and strums enough to annoy her cat, Pepper.
