Jillian publishes contemporary romance that she calls feminist/humanist smut for the smart. She lives in Valley Forge, Pennsylvania with her husband (who has been her rock for longer than she is willing to admit) and has two magnificent daughters (who are and always will be her inspiration). Perfect day: The beach with the fam and a great book. Perfect date: Flyers game and a Tony Luke's cheesesteak. She is an Italian goddess, cook-extraordinaire (not bragging—well maybe a little), UPenn and NYU alum, lawyer, professor, writer, traveler, and “life is too short for small boxes” kind of lady. She is a member of the Romance Writers of America and the Valley Forge Romance Writers.

Yes, my chattering nature does influence my writing - I adore writing dialogue and long form fiction - but I do not think a talkative or more reserved nature is a definitive factor in become an author. When I write character dialogue, I don't want my voice to be the voice the reader hears. It's more fun to play around with creating a person I am not (critical too). One of my favorite lines from my latest comes from a scene where Sabin wakes his fiance with...um...I should keep it PG...and says, "Now that's a good mornin' done proper, ma'am."
Definitely not something this Italian diva from Philly would say! I think writers write because they love words and stories. (less)
