Jill, how did you get into writing?
My writer's journey began as an introverted child with her nose stuck in a book. In the sixth grade, I was blessed with a teacher who perched on a stool and read to the class from the most imaginative stories. Something in this process of hearing a story awakened a realization in me--I didn't merely want to be a person who received pleasure from a good book; I wanted to be the person who gave that pleasure to others. Despite the early realization of my calling, it still took decades of hard work and sometimes heartache and even giving up on the dream for periods of time before I received my first novel contract in 2005.
My tenth book, Betrayal on the Border, released in November 2012. In the past couple of years, I've also had the pleasure of partnering with Hannah Alexander in a two-novella Christmas book, Season of Danger, and of releasing another romantic suspense, Legacy of Lies.
