About Jill-I-Am: Author: FAQ’s

At school, a big comprehensive near Bradford, I was inspired by my two amazing English teachers – Paddy and Vanda. Paddy was quite eccentric, he had a thick black beard [in vogue now, but not back then!] and wore black capes, but above all he had passion, plus great spirit and charisma. From school I went onto further education and I have a BA Hons degree in English/American Literature with Film and Creative Writing from the world renown University of East Anglia, UK. In 2015 I became fascinated by life purpose – we are all unique, what are we meant to contribute, are we in-synch living authentically and using our unique gifts? I travelled to Paris and became a Passion Test facilitator with the amazing Chris Attwood, and in mid 2017 I co-authored a No 1 best seller – ‘Inspired by the Passion Test.’ After the self-help book experience, from seemingly endless drafts through editing to publication, I got fired up enough to write fiction, or rather finish writing the novel in me, that had long been gathering dust in a drawer [a mature person’s equivalent of a PC file and much easier to find?]

Yes, I guess! The self–help book was my first toe in the water and it was published traditionally in paperback form and digitally on Amazon Kindle. The novel has taken a long time from inception to completion and for ages I struggled with the genre, but through numerous drafts it took shape as I drew on things I’m passionate about: horses, spirituality, paranormal, psychology, past lives, magic, witch craft, alchemy, astrology, unicorns and winged things [no not planes – but definitely dragons, fairies, bees and butterflies] Native American Indians [special thanks to my spirit guide Alohma,] and of course crime, mystery and suspense. Many of these ingredients went into the mix of my debut crime/mystery novel ‘Spirit of Prophecy’ which is available on Amazon.

I grew up in Cottingley, West Yorkshire,UK which is famous for fairies [Ok, well fake fairy photographs taken several decades ago by two local girls.] That sparked an interest in metaphysics and the paranormal for me, and in the Age of Aquarius the ideas are spreading rapidly and delighting all us free-spirited nonconformists. When I first submitted the book to a literary agent they said: ” great equestrian love story, but take out all the paranormal stuff and you’ll stand a much better chance of landing a publishing deal.” I ignored that advice, so let’s hope the time is now right.

Jane Eyre, [Charlotte Bronte] Gone with the Wind, [Margaret Mitchell], Wuthering Heights [Emily Bronte], Pride and Prejudice [Jane Austen]. The Bronte’s hail from Howarth, West Yorkshire which is a place very close to where I grew up and which I hold very dear in my heart. These works are all remarkable stories of loss, love and eligible bachelors. These four amazing female authors created fabulous, unforgettable heroes – the Byronic Edward Rochester, a wild and very untamed Heathcliff as rough and rugged as the Yorkshire moors themselves, the very desirable [and rich] Mr Darcy and that archetypal affluent Southern gent Rhett Butler. They form a line up that’s tall act for my hero Tommy Rafferty to follow.

He’s dark in a Poldark kind of way – a horse dealer, ex-show jumper and an Irish Traveller. A bit of a rogue, so I hope he can fill their boots and do the feisty heroine Juliet Jermaine justice. Wait and see? Or better still read, ‘Spirit of Prophecy’ and find out for yourself.

Initially, I was going to enter a publishing competition run by Amazon, this imposed a tight completion deadline which incentivised me to crack on, but then I realised the finalists would be selected according to sales, readers and reviews – so this disadvantaged first time novelists who had no tribe or established following. I was a nomad wandering in the wilderness, so to speak. Ultimately, it was speed which swayed me – the self-help book was traditionally published in print and relatively quick at eighteen months from start to shelf but it still seemed to take ages, [I’m not a patient person by-the-way.] Also control, I got to design my own book jacket and image and that was very important to me, so I launched into Self-publishing – great but not for the faint of heart.
