Jill Sheldon is the USA TODAY best-selling, award-winning author of over 50 novels. She's been on the Waldenbooks Bestsellers list, the Barnes and Noble Top 100, the Amazon bestsellers list, and also Ingram's. She's a Rita Award nominee, a three-time National Reader's Choice Award winner, and has been nominated for Romantic Times's Career Achievement Award in Romantic Comedy, Best Duets and Best Temptation.
Jill writes from her home near Lake Tahoe, California, U.S.A.. She is assisted by her husband (who can't go three minutes without wanting to tell her something), three young children (who can't go one minute without wanting to tell her something), a chicken masquerading as a dog, three hamsters, a million squirrels and the occasional wolf spider. If she's not writing, she's shovelling snow, skiing, or colouring with her kids.
