My name is Jill. I’m a daydreaming, chocolate loving, creator of kingdoms. I write weird books for teens that shine light in the darkness. I also teach fifth grade. Fantasy is my favorite genre. I’m a Whovian, a Photoshop addict, and a recovering fashion design assistant, who was raised in Alaska.
Welcome to the adventure.
Pre-order Magic Hunters 2: The Rising Rebellion!
Separated by realms, Hunter and Izzy must find a way back to each other, but first they have their own quests to solve.
Ever since Hunter accidentally banished magic, a rebellion has been growing in the Story Realms. The rebel leader holds Izzy captive in Rapunzel’s tower as he amasses his army. Meanwhile, Hunter climbs the beanstalk in hopes of tracking down objects that will enable him to restore magic. As he travels in and out of different worlds, he faces trolls, gargoyles, and a giant who is determined to stomp him flat.
To survive, Hunter and Izzy will need the help of new friends, Jack and Alice, who each have goals of their own. As obstacles between them multiply, will Hunter and Izzy ever be reunited? Or will this quest demand the ultimate sacrifice?
