Jill

Jill is a writer and marathoner from Minnesota.
She currently resides in Chicago, about eight hours away from her dear mother/future self, a woman who’s mostly sugar, but a little spice. Jill’s precise, succinct storytelling style is a reflection of her experience as a 2nd-grade teacher on Chicago’s south side. Jill, like most 7-year-olds, begins to wiggle and get bored when stories have too many words. Click here to meet the other authors.
