A multi-published author and former RWA President, Jill Limber’s latest books are Montana Morning, A Heart That Dares and The Right Track. As a child, some of Jill’s tales got her in trouble, but now she gets paid for them. Residing in San Diego with her husband and a trio of dogs and one very ancient cat, Jill’s favorite pastime is to gather friends and family for good food, conversation and plenty of laughter.
Thank you for this interview, Jill. Can we begin by asking you about your background? How did you get started writing books?
Jill: I have always loved storytelling and reading. It seems like it was a natural progression to writing my own stories in book form. I was a history minor in college, and that love has helped with my historical romances and all the research I do for all my books.
You were a past president of RWA. Can you tell us all about that?
Jill: Romance Writers of America is an amazing writers organization, exceptionally supportive and a great place to learn the craft of writing as well as the publishing business. I was delighted to serve on the board and be elected president. It was a huge responsibility, but I enjoyed every minute of it and made some life-long friends in the process.
You have quite a few books out! Can you tell us what they are and what they’re about?
Jill: Each one is very different, some historical, some contemporary, but all traditional romances. I love a happy ending. I’m just now getting into the digital publishing world and learning all the exciting possibilities.
What’s your publishing story for The Right Track?
Jill: This was a book close to my heart because it is set on an actual train car that is almost 100 years old. I have travelled many times on this car as a personal chef to the owners on cross-country trips and have many wonderful memories. It was a natural to write a story set on the car, and a great deal of the book was written during trips from San Diegoto Chicago and Washington D. C.
Will you have more books out soon?
Jill: I am working on a historical romance set in BuffaloN.Y.in 1888 entitled The Ungovernable Governess that will be out soon.
What advice can you give aspiring authors in this new age of publishing?
Jill: Look at all your options. The publishing world is changing drastically, but the most important thing will always be to learn your craft well and write a darn good book.
