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 UK magazine.
Fuelled by coffee and Netflix, I spend my free time writing about fictional worlds, places where my readers can experience adventures, love, and loss with strong and fascinating characters.
