"Refreshing and pleasing." —Miles David Moore, author of The Bears of Paris
Jill Williams is a native of Hartford, Connecticut, but she makes her home in Vancouver, British Columbia. She is also the author of a Broadway musical entitled Rainbow Jones. "As a formalist," says Williams, "I love the challenge of marrying an idea with a specific poetic structure. Writing The Nature Sonnets has given me ample opportunity." Aside from her obvious gift as a poet, Williams has also been a performer both as a recording artist (RCA Victor, "Jill Williams") and a news commentator for CBC-Radio (The Early Editon). Williams states, "I believe creativity can take many different directions. I've been fortunate enough in my lifetime to have experienced quite a few."
