Biography

Jill Barnett was born and raised in Southern California, but spent summers visiting her grandparents in Texas.

Intending to teach and write college history textbooks, Barnett returned to school to pursue a Master's degree while in her mid-thirties. After juggling coursework with her new family, Barnett quit school to stay home with her infant daughter. She soon began working on an idea for a novel. Two years after she quit school, Barnett sold her first book.

Since that day, Barnett had written over fifteen novels. Her novels can be read in nineteen languages, and there are more than seven million copies of her books in print.
