1. Jill’s Books

I write weird books for teens. Another word for “weird” is speculative fiction, which is fantasy, sci fi, time travel, supernatural, paranormal, alternate history, dystopian, steampunk, or anything else WAY out of the ordinary.

2. Jill’s Blog

Here I blog about adventures in life, writing, and reading. I have a lot of random thoughts in my head too. This is the place I like to share them.

RoboTales Release Day!

It’s finally here! The book that my son and I have been working on these past four years is now available. I’m very excited.

RoboTales is a chapter book series for readers ages 7-13 that I wrote with my son Luke. These are fairytale retellings that take place in a fictional solar system. The stories are tied together by a lost robot dog who is broken and is trying to find out who he is and what he was built to accomplish.


Encouraging others is important to me, so I’ve decided to be more intentional about it in hopes that it might rub off on those I come into contact with. I’ve started the hashtag #shinelight as a way of encouraging online and through social media to live this way.

CHOIS 2015 in Nampa, Idaho

In Category: Jill Williamson's Blog

Last week I attended the CHOIS convention in Nampa, Idaho. This was the sixth year I’ve gone, and I always have a wonderful time. The CHOIS convention used to be held at College Church of the Nazarene, but they outgrew the space, so this year they were in the NNU gymnasium. My friend Angela Strong joined me with her wonderfully funny Fun4Hire middle grade series. Here we are in our booth.
