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.

Watch out for that tree…

I’ve had some email asking about our bears. I haven’t been quick enough with the camera lately but here’s pics and an adventure that occurred last May …

Yeah, aren’t they adorable? Two fairly young bear cubs sitting in the tree RIGHT OUTSIDE OUR FRONT DOOR. Know why they’re in the tree? Because my dog is at the base of said tree barking like these two little adorable babies are his long lost buddies.

And then it occurs to me … no way is their momma far away. And that’s when I see her. Pacing just behind our house …

Sigh … and to think I sometimes worry my life is boring …

Monday’s Musing

SO I’M FINALLY HOME. Two weeks gone, one to help my mom recoup from surgery and another to Romance Writer’s of America’s national conference, where I had a ball. Pics to come. But for now, I have a contest. I’m hoping you’ve all got SWEET LITTLE LIES by now, yes? Tell me the next book in the series (bonus points for those of you who read Sweet Little Lies and can tell me what you’re looking forward to in the books ahead) and three of you will win that book.

Also, I can’t believe I forgot to thank you all for putting SWEET LITTLE LIES on the New York Times, USA Today, and Publisher’s Weekly bestseller lists!!!!! Love you all!

From San Diego

So I’m still in sunny, gorgeous San Diego. Had a great signing last night. If you were there, THANK YOU for coming out! I lost my voice early on…


Not that it stopped me …


I hope I got to meet you but if I didn’t…


There’s always next time!

Before you go, I want to hear what you’re all reading!

Happy Hump Day

Today is another pick of how I see Finn from SWEET LITTLE LIES, from the camping scene.


Thought you maybe you’d appreciate the visual. :heart:

Tuesday’s Tidbit

So I went to the San Diego Zoo and found the panda bear doing what I wanted to do.

Monday’s Musings

So my mom had to have surgery and I spent the last week keeping her company in her rehab facility. I’ve had more proposals in the past week than in my entire life. Which brings me to my point. Men could have their teeth falling out, their pants hitched up to their armpits, and hair growing out their ears and they don’t worry about any of it — they’ll still think they’re hot shit and will put themselves out there.

Not sure if that’s adorable or horrifying.

Oh and I saw this online and thought this. This is today’s philosophy. Even though my hair is doing something weird and my yoga pants feel a little snug, today I will do this:


How about you?
