Karen: I know that having a supply of cookies at the ready is important to your writing process. What kind of cookie do you reach for when you hit a sticky bit of writing or are on a tight deadline?
Jill: Any kind. I am not a cookie snob. However, I do have a fondness for Mint Milanos and anything with chocolate chips in them.
Karen: One of the great things about blogs is that we get to watch people's children grow up and your three daughters have grown up a lot in the years I've read your blog. (I'm personally in denial that your oldest daughter has graduated from college.) I've always wondered what they thought about watching their mother write romance novels. Do they read your books?
Jill: Ha. No, they don't read my books. They're proud of me, but in a peripheral way. They don't want to know details. And recently my oldest daughter had to unfollow me on Pinterest because all the naked men embarrassed her. :)
Karen: The Lucky Harbor novels are just one set of books. What's coming up next?
JIll: I'm still writing the Animal Magnetism series, and Adam gets his book in November with Rescue My Heart. I will also be doing more Lucky Harbors. But now, this summer, it's the Chocoholics Trilogy with Lucky in Love, At Last, and Forever and a Day.
Karen: Yay for three more Lucky Harbor novels! Thank you Jill!
