My favorite Saturday-night splurge consists of getting lost in a graveyard of long-lost, unusual, and useful information. I love literary intrigue and welcome writing challenges that require technical research, accuracy and interpretation.

I am a graduate of Northwest Missouri State University (bachelors in English), Stetson University (masters in reading). and Rollins College (masters in liberal studies).

Hosting the creative writing club, Those Who Wander, at Daytona State College rekindled my longing to write.

Presently, I am leading an online critique group for SCBWI's Volusia County Regional Division. If you are interested in getting your writing critiqued, and critiquing for others, then please contact me at jillwriterscafexpress@gmail.com. This group is not for reproofing school papers. For those who like to meet face-to-face, we meet online via gmail's Hangout video-chat feature.
