Jan Tilley was born and raised in northern Ohio. Enticed by the sea, she later moved to Wilmington, North Carolina and now writes from a cabin nestled in the woods in rural Indiana.
She has held a wide array of jobs throughout the years, including newspaper reporter, veterinary assistant, and Public Information Officer for Emergency Management. But, her most important job has been raising her two daughters, Sara and Brooke. She has been married to her high school sweetheart, Kevin since 1985.
Jan wrote her first novel "Coming About" after her oldest daughter went off to college. It began as a purging of emotions but as they always do, the characters came alive and took the story down a totally different path that she never expected.
She was then bitten by the bug and is now admittedly obsessed with writing. Her second novel was a sci-fi endeavor titled "Embody". She was a featured guest on The Kevin Smith Show where she discussed the book in a live two-hour interview to a world-wide audience of over one million people.
"Rogue's Hollow" was her next release which is a suspenseful ride, fictionally based on the like named, spooky town near where she grew up.
Next came "Jasper's Gift", which is the highly anticipated sequel to her first novel. Tilley loved revisiting her pals, Sadie and Rachel. She said it was like going home to visit old friends again.
"I'm Not Listening" is her latest release. Suspense and steamy romance make this a new adult favorite pick.
Tilley is an award-winning author who has been a guest speaker at multiple conferences and events. More than 100,000 copies of her books have been distributed world-wide.
She will continue doing her best to entertain you for as long as you'll welcome her into your lives! If you would like to contact Jan you can follow her on twitter @tilleytalk or at Jan Tilley & Friends on Facebook.
