Interview with Jill Sanders

What inspired you to become an author?

I’ve always had a desire to tell stories. I have a few teachers encourage me and tell me I had a talent for descriptive writing. But, until my twin sister pushed me to finish my first project, Finding Pride, I think everything would have just sat on my hard drive.

Do you write in different genres?

I write Romance. Contemporary romance & romantic suspense.

If yes which is your favorite genre to write?

I love them both. I love adding a little suspense or throwing those small curves in the plots.

How did you come up with the title for your latest book?

My husband and I went through a process of blurting out anything that came to mind over a two week period. We finally both agreed on Secret Seduction.

Do you title the book first or wait until after it’s complete?

Title the books. It’s easier for me to match what I’m going to write about.

Is the book, characters, or any scenes based on a true life experience, someone you know, or events in your own life?

No, all made up. Well, they are real in my head.

What books/authors have influenced your life?

Everything I’ve ever read has influenced me in one way. But, my favorite is Nora Roberts.

What is your current “work in progress” or upcoming projects?

More of my Secret series as well as a country contemporary romance series. I also have a Christmas book in the works and a short story that proceeds my Pride series.

Is there anything you find particularly challenging in your writing?

Time, I don’t see to have enough of it.

Who designed the cover of your latest book?

My husband and I worked very hard on all the covers for my books. He has great talent and has also done wonders for my website.


Lasting Pride

Roberta Stanton had grown up a thief on the streets of Portland. Breaking into the old building had been easy, and she’d gotten away with it. Or so she thought. It had only cost her the lives of seven close friends. Years later now, Rob finds herself on the other side of the law.

Ric Derby owns the Blue Spot art galleries. Murder and a million dollar theft bring them together. A personal vendetta from a dark figure threatens them both. Retreating to the safety of the small town of Pride, Ric must fight to protect the only person he’s ever truly loved.

Secret Seduction

To Katie life was simple, she wanted; a little house in upper Boston, and four kids, fathered by her best friend, who she’s been infatuated with since she was eight. After a devastating family secret is exposed, all she wants now is to escape the media hype that follows her everywhere she turns. Leaving her family, friends, and Jason behind, she travels to places she’s only read about, to find a father she’s never known.

Jason is on a mission and he’s come half-way around the world to complete it. Despite his feelings for Katie, he won’t let her resistance detour him, even if it means she’ll never trust him again. As their world spirals out of control, their relationship will be tested and changed forever. If he can only keep them alive and out of harms way, he may have a chance to make everything right.

Jill Sanders survived 80's pop music, and life as an identical twin in a chaotic family of nine.  A feat by any standard!  She was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, relocating to Colorado for college and a successful IT career at IBM in Boulder.

Narrowly escaping before all creativity was squashed, she jumped at the chance to trade the mundane world of computers for the sexy, exciting world of her own imagination.  She now lives in charming rural Texas writing wonderful novels such as the Pride series.

Her debut novel, Finding Pride, was shortlisted in the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Awards 2013, and has since climbed to #2 on Amazon Bestsellers – Romantic Suspense. Each book in the Pride Series has found a regular home on Amazon’s Bestseller lists.

Stay tuned for Jill’s newest romantic suspense series – The Secret series.
