Born in California, Jill Hannah Anderson lived everywhere from the Azore Islands to Florida. After her dad left the Air Force, the family settled in St. Paul, Minnesota, where she lived until she graduated from high school.
Voted “Most Imaginative” in high school, Jill assumed everyone else looked at life with "What If "goggles too. She’s often told that she asks too many questions, but finds it a great way to learn about people.
You’ll rarely find her without pen and paper nearby, for the random stories popping in her head. Unfortunately, they tend to show up when she’s running, which is a problem because she does not run with a pen and paper.
Jill now lives on a lake in a small town in Central Minnesota with her husband and their empty nest. It is rarely a quiet nest though, as they enjoy their six adult children and ever-increasing number of grand-children when they come to visit.
For nearly two decades, Jill has worked at a communications company. She also has written part-time for a Minnesota women’s magazine for over ten years. In her spare time (is there such a thing?) she pursued her dream to write a book. Her first women’s fiction novel, The To-Hell-And-Back Club, will be published in spring, 2017.
She is a proud member of Women’s Fiction Writers Association (WFWA), and is currently at work on her second women’s fiction novel. When she isn’t working, writing, or reading, you’ll find her running, curling, biking, and enjoying time with family and friends.
