Jill now lives with her husband on a lake in central Minnesota where they enjoy visits from their adult children and their many grandchildren. She is the author of Closer to Home, A Life Unraveled, Crazy Little Town Called Love, The To-Hell-And-Back Club, and is busy working on her next book. She is a member of the Women’s Fiction Writers Association (WFWA).
