Jill Penrod wrote her first novel in high school. It was a space opera (she watched Star Wars A LOT), and it was not great literature. But she persevered, graduating college with top honors in writing. Since then, she’s published more than thirty novels. By the end of 2016 she will have six series available in several genres, including Christian teen romance, sweet romance, and Christian fantasy stories. None of them are space operas.
Jill lives in Kentucky with her husband and high school son. She has three adult children out there doing adult things like work and marriage. When she isn’t writing, she teaches her son at home, does pottery, and spoils her long-haired Chihuahua Sparrow. Recently she fulfilled her dream of moving to the country, although it has yet to be seen if this city mouse can become a country mouse or not.
