Jill's Blog

Welcome to my daily blog. If this is your first time, I'm a romance writer and a misplaced city girl currently living in the wild Sierras. I tend to have a lot of I-Love-Lucy moments that I share here but sometimes we talk about books, TV, and our favorite cookies. Okay, my favorite cookies. In any case, please feel free to comment by clicking on the Comments at the bottom of any entry. If you're too shy, that's okay, just know I love having you.

Hump Day

Is it any wonder that I watch Supernatural? 99% of it is for this man:


Jensen Ackles, sigh, who plays the fictional love of my life (sorry, Alpha Man) Dean Winchester.


How about you, who’s your TV boyfriend right now?

The cat speaks…

Meet Satan, aka Evil Kitty.


She rules the roost, she is grumpy, she is hairy, she takes up more than her fair share of the bed and she is the love of my life. Tell me about your fur babies.

Only me

So I drove to the store and grabbed my car remote thingie without looking and because I was tangled up in my bag and some other stuff, I hit the door lock on the actual door rather than use the remote, and then shut the door. A little while later I came out of store and tried to hunt down the car remote thingie in my bag but it wasn’t there. I’d grabbed the little garage remote thingie instead!

Yes, seriously.

I bet Toyota never thought of this crazy way to lock yourself out of your car when they came up with the remote… sigh. Only me.

Ever lock yourself out of anything? Please tell me yes…

Thursday’s Tidbits

I often get asked what were my fave books to write. This changes often but here’s three:

One of my personal favorites, because the heroine is really really smart, and really really socially inept. When Kate sees a cute guy, she gets nervous and spouts science facts. I laughed every time I had her say something ridiculous in front of hot, sexy Griffin Reid, like “pigs orgasm in thirty minute intervals”. And then of course Grif had only one response to that, a question that made our poor Kate even more nervous. “The real or faked kind of orgasms?” Most fun I had researching ever…

Look, I think we all know I have a big thing for firefighters. I can’t help myself. A hero who puts life and limb on the line every day for the sake of perfect strangers? Love. And firefighter Jack Harper, a guy trying to live up to his dad’s legacy and a town’s expectations, had all my love from page one. Plus he’s sexy and a total smartass. My favorite type…

This book is a fave because it flat out made me laugh as I wrote it. Like when the heroine, bad girl Aubrey Wellington throws her drink in sexy, grumpy, alpha hero Ben Mc Daniel’s face – by accident. At least mostly. But then she runs and hides in what turns out to be an AA meeting and then town thinks she’s an alcoholic. Or when Ben figures out she’s made a list of people she’s wronged and is trying to fix those wrongs, and he wonders why the list isn’t a lot longer than it is. Or when Aubrey gets a little tipsy and throws rocks at Ben’s window like a scene right out of the Say Anything movie …

Now the question of the day is which are some of your Shalvis faves? I’ll be drawing a few names from the commenters, who will win the book of their choice. :razz:

Happy Hump Day

So I’m writing another firefighter. I can’t help myself…


You don’t mind, do you?
