A native Californian, Jill’s novels are set under the glittering lights of the West Coast entertainment industry.
They are for the dreamer in all of us.

I'm still so new to writing that I've just poured everything I have into these books (and am even considering writing additional stories on the other siblings). It definitely makes it hard to focus on any other story or character when the McKallister family dominates my life-haha. I have, however, kicked around another rock star romance idea-something I haven't seen written before- but it will have to wait at least another book or two. :)(less)

Hi Mary,
Sorry you didn't get anything done this weekend. 😂 So happy you liked the stories though. I love the McKallisters. Fiercely Emma (book 3) has been written and is just finishing up with the editing. It's been getting positive buzz so I'm hopeful it will live up to expectation. I have my narrators booked for July 3rd and if all goes as planned all book formats will be released together next month(although Audible can be a little unpredictable and may release a few days behind). Next week I'll post the release date on Facebook. 😀(less)

It is no secret that I'm a green author and am still finding my footing in the author world. It's not easy to enter into this business with no knowledge and I feel like I've been playing catchup for a very long time.

One place I've always wanted to become active on is Goodreads...but it's Read more of this blog post »

“Daddy, look at me. Look at me, Daddy,” Axel hollered, a big toothy grin accompanying my youngest’s spastic movements as he flopped on the grass like an earthworm. Yep, that one was all mine.”

“Aren’t you scared? The whole world has gone to hell. How are we ever going to get back to what it was?” There was a long pause before he replied. “We can’t go back, Kyle. Life was never meant to be traveled in reverse.”
