Born 1949 - Not dead yet. Qualified as a teacher for children with severe learning disabilities and taught for a while in Surrey before moving to Devon in the early 1970s. Jill has had loads of different jobs since then, most of them in the care sector, either residential homes or in the community. Divorced and her son now living in New Zealand (the two events aren't connected) Jill moved back to the south east in 2010 and lives in a mobile home in Kent with her dog QT, surrounded by the fantastic scenery of the North Downs and a vast expanse of sky.
"Joan's Descent into Alzheimer's" is the first book Jill has written, though she has had odd bits published in local and national newspapers.
