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.

A Jill story, or an I Love Lucy story (same thing…)

This is a blog entry from exactly four years ago, it cracked me up so I decided to repeat it:

Once upon a time I thought it would be such a great idea to move from the big, bad city of Los Angeles to the mountains. Specifically, the deep Sierras. I’d get four seasons, I reasoned. And I could get up at eight in the morning and still be the first on the slopes to ski FRESH POWDER instead of getting up at four and fighting traffic for two hours to ski on crap.

Sounded great. And for several years, it was.

And then Mother Nature stopped taking her valium and went on crack. Or maybe her husband dumped her. Or maybe she ran out of cookies. I don’t know. But we’re buried. Literally.

That’s our house. This is Alpha Man trying to dig out said house:

Here’s the famed bear box where we keep our trash. Check out the snow on that baby:

Alpha Man is going to try to rig it so the snow falls on the bear the next time he tries to get in it. I’ll do my best to catch THAT on camera. Actually, maybe I should just concentrate on my driving skills in this whole messy situation. Against Alpha Man’s advice, I tried to give Middle’s best friend a ride home yesterday morning after TWO MORE FREAKING FEET OF SNOW on top of the million feet we already had. I got around the corner before I got stuck.


Middle and Special Edition tried to dig me out but it wasn’t working. A cute guy in a truck stopped and offered to help and just as I opened my mouth to say YES PLEASE SAVE ME, the girls told him we were fine and he drove off. My knight in shining armor DROVE OFF. So we dig some more. You’re probably wondering why I didn’t just call Alpha Man. Well because he would have laughed, that’s why. I realize that’s not a very mature reason but it’s the truth. A little more digging time goes by and then another truck rolls up, with another guy. He asks if he can help and I say NO.

He pulls me out anyway, and he only laughed a little.

Thank you, Alpha Man. (she said only slightly begrudgingly)

Happy Hump Day

It’s been one of those weeks but luckily it is Wednesday, which means an hour of trolling the internet for a hot guy pic. Sometimes, I love this job.

And now that we’re all here and cozy and chatting … why don’t I write cowboys?????


Now go forth and have a great Wednesday. You look fantastic and have you lost weight? :heart:

So I caught her sitting like this, in the cat’s usual spot, looking guilty as hell.

Caption this pic and two of you will win copies of ACCIDENTALLY ON PURPOSE!

Cover reveal!

So next summer I’ve got something new coming out. A bigger, longer book called LOST AND FOUND SISTERS. There is still romance in it … actually there are TWO romances in it, but there’s more too. I’m excited to finally be able to show you the cover.

Lost and Found Sisters

Oh and yes, there’s also an old dog named Coop who just might steal your heart.

So how about a little tease?

What do we think? Because this is a trade sized book, it costs a little bit more than a mass market, BUT … you’ll get more to read, so I’m hoping it’s okay with you all. Let me know what you think! Some buy links here for your convenience for those who’d like to make my day and preorder! XOXO, Jill

Dead Husband Walking…

What are you eating?

Him (mouth full):

It smells like Oreos.


Are you … eating Oreos? I thought we were out of cookies!!

There’s only four left.

I need two.

I’ll give you one.

No! You can’t eat just one cookie!!! There’s a rule!!!

Show me the book where this rule lives.

I’LL WRITE YOU THE $%#!#$!@ book, give me a second cookie and no one gets hurt!

Is is possible that you need something to go with that cookie?


I was thinking Midol…
