Jillian Green DiGiacomo grew up in a New Jersey suburb and currently lives in a New Jersey suburb (though not the same suburb). Once upon a time, she graduated with a degree in Asian studies from Vassar College and received a master’s degree in teaching from the Harvard University Graduate School of Education. Before having children, she spent most of her time either teaching English in Japan or teaching Japanese to high school students in New York. After having children, she completely forgot how to speak Japanese and has a hard time with English most days.

Jillian Green DiGiacomo In silence, I pick toenail clippings off the cold tile floor. They are not my toenails.
Jillian Green DiGiacomo I don't. I bury my head and make peace with the knowledge that I have nothing left to say. I pretend that I am grateful to have had the good fortune…moreI don't. I bury my head and make peace with the knowledge that I have nothing left to say. I pretend that I am grateful to have had the good fortune of creating a few books and articles that seemed to have resonated with my readers. Then, I take up knitting or water coloring or pay some attention to my long neglected children. Inevitably, it becomes painfully obvious that my water colors are more water than color; the pile of lumpy scarves I'd amassed will never sell at even a fraction of the cost of the yarn I'd knotted up; and my kids are actually much happier when I neglect them. At some point, just before I sign up for an intensive yoga certification class, a glimmer of an idea begins to take shape and I sit down to type what I am certain will be the last piece I ever write. And the beat goes on. (less)

Codename Cupcake (Literature & Fiction)
1 chapters   —   updated Sep 17, 2015 06:41AM
Description: CODENAME CUPCAKE is an old fashioned stay-at-home-mom turned superhero spy novel. It is the story of Molly Peterson, a frazzled mother of two, who is recruited by a super spy agency to infiltrate the PTA at her own son's elementary school. A staunch PTA avoider, Molly is disappointed to learn that her assignment will require her to not only join the PTA but “become” the PTA. Midwood Elementary School is cooling at an alarming rate and Molly must spend as much time as possible in the building to determine the cause and help prevent a potential calamity. With a back drop of ordinary school functions including back to school night and a fall concert, CODENAME CUPCAKE offers a new twist on the superhero genre. It is a send up of motherhood, the PTA, comic books and spy novels. It is fast paced and funny with the underlying message that life really is better when you have super powers.
