The Interview

Interview with Jill Sanders

(continued from front page)

What are you currently working on?

I’m writing the tenth book in my West Series. Saving Trace comes out on my birthday April 7, 2020. 

 

What’s your vision for the future of publishing?

I write about nine to 11 books a year. I’d like to say I’ll slow down, but I’ve been saying that for the past few years. 

 

What drives you to keep on writing?

The love of telling a good story.

If you could tell your younger writing self anything, what would it be?

Get comfortable using the treadmill desk a lot sooner. 

 

What is the one thing you want your readers to know about your books?

In every story I’ve written, there is a hidden lesson to love yourself and be more kind. I hope you’ve enjoyed my stories and take to heart that lesson.

Messy. It’s a large L-shape with two sections and lots of dog hair everywhere. 

 

Describe your writing process

I open a blank folder and start. I may have done some plotting, but most likely not. 

 

What is your writing Kryptonite?

My dog on my lap. She makes my legs go to sleep. If I get writer’s block (not a real thing for me) I take the dogs on a walk and then get back to work.  

 

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?

I grew up in the small town of Castle Rock, Washington. Near the foot of Mt. St. Helens. If you’ve read my Pride books, you’ve visited Castle Rock.
