Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.

Jillian Jacobs
I write in the following genres: Paranormal and Contemporary with suspenseful elements. I love moose, polish pottery, and hot tea.
I am the co-founder of Healing with Words—a not for profit agency established for healing survivors of abuse, addiction, trafficking, and prostitution. The mission is to bring together readers, authors, and survivors in a positive manner that affects change and relief from negative influences. Writers on The River, an author event in Peoria, Illinois is hosted by Healing With Words.

When and Why did you start to write?

I started to write because I thought I’d be the next Nora Roberts with my books on every shelf. I learned quickly that’s not how it works. And I’m an avid reader and thought, I’ll give romance writing a try because I love it so much.

What authors do you always read or suggest to others?

I read a lot of historical over the years and some paranormal because that’s what’s sold in stores. I’ve since found many self-published authors I enjoy. My favorite new author of 2017 was TJ Klune. One author I suggest to everyone is Karen Marie Moning. I love her highlander series. I suggest you look at the Writers On The River website under the Authors tab for a whole list of awesome authors.

What is the most surprising thing you have found out with the writing process?

That the comma is not your friend. But seriously, I’ve found that the author community is a lovely, wonderful place, and I’ve made lasting friendships that I’ll cherish forever.

What are you working on now?

My very first Male/Male romance called Spotlight.

When writing are you a pantser or plotter?
