J Z Morrison Press

Publisher info

The author of numerous short stories and novels, Jill Zeller is a writer living near Seattle, Washington with her patient and adoring husband, one self-centered tuxedo cat and one pit bull mix named Jack.
Her works explore the boundaries of reality. Some may call it fantasy, but there are rarely swords and never elves. More to the point, she prefers to write as if myth, imagination and hallucination were as real as the chair she is sitting on as she writes this. Maybe it is because she was raised as a Christian Scientist.
