June

“Wisteria woke me this morning,
And there was all June in the garden;
I felt them, early, warning
Lest I miss any part of the day.

Straight I walked to the trellis vine.
Wisteria touched a lifted nostril:
Feelings of beauty diffused, to entwine
My spirit with June’s own aura.”
–  Ann McGough, Summons

Hi, I’m Jill, a writer and teacher living in the UK, usually behind a desk but sometimes on a sofa with a book or a film. I began writing at around age three, legibly by five, although I didn’t write any stories until I was older. Aged eleven, I began writing children’s fiction, mostly middle-grade fantasy and I’m still doing it to this day. I have had stories published online and in My Weekly magazine. The best bit about writing is when ideas pop into your head (from the writing fairy presumably?) and everything starts clipping together like a jigsaw puzzle. The worst bit? When you start to get the feeling there's a piece missing from the box...

  2. I just finished reading “Evertrue.” I loved it! I laughed out loud several times. The troglonomes were great. I felt sad for Nickl. And, for some reason, Hildegaard looked like Peter Davison inside my heard. It was brilliant and very, very entertaining.

      1. Thank you! … I really liked the way you describe the cave. When I was a kid, my family went to a lot of “tourist” caves, with lights everywhere and a gift shop at the entrance. Your book brought back memories of that.

      2. Thank-you for that lovely compliment. The cave system I described in Evertrue is based on the caves we visited in Slovenia, so I’m really pleased it evoked those memories for you 🙂
