Writer. Journalist. Creator.
Jill Robi is a Chicago native and Columbia Chicago graduate. With a BA in fiction writing, she is a self-proclaimed geek, avid comic-con attendee, cosplayer, and professional karaoke singer.
Jill is a seasoned writer, predominantly known for her interviews. She has worked for Unite4:Good magazine, where she cut her journalistic teeth with legend Dionne Warwick, a plethora of CEOs and various musical talent.
A freelancer, she continues to work for the Sugar Gamers and The Geek Initiative as press and film critic.
Currently, Jill has just finished her third novel, THE GOOD SOLDIER (available on Amazon), and is now working on her fourth novel. Not keen on being traditional, it is also her fourth, vastly different genre to write in [street contemporary]. Though she favors pop-fic and chick lit, Jill also likes to write poetry, noir, and sci-fi/fantasy. She particularly loves exploring character studies.
She writes first and foremost for her own entertainment. She hopes that by sharing her work with the world, she can also achieve the entertainment and enjoyment of others as well.

So many of us have daydreamed about what it would be like to know the object of our fannish devotion on a personal level - even if for only a moment. Would he be as we imagined? And how would we be affected by the experience? In Fangirl, these questions are addressed as we follow Khloe on her quest to be in the presence of Weston Moore, the object of her fangirl crush for years. Khloe is among the group of "super devoted" fans who attend conventions, press events, album releases. Although I haven't done that myself, I get it, and it was so much fun taking this journey with her. I thoroughly enjoyed this story. I could relate on so many levels, and it was so much fun to watch the interaction between Khloe and Weston Moore develop. I won't spoil the ending, but I highly recommend this book to anyone who has admired a celebrity from afar!

What a pleasant surprise, this e-book.
I couldn't stop reading all afternoon, because of how much I could relate to it, and how well written it was. It really is going to make fangirls all over the world swoon to death.
It's been quite awkward, and at the same time, thrilling, to read about experiences that some of us have had, taken to the next level.
There was just the right amount of friendship, girl issues, fangirling and romance in this. I find myself longing for a sequel, now.
Very well done, Jill. I'll recommand this to all the fangirls I know, for sure.
Much love from France,

If you ever liked a particular actor and ever dreamed of meeting him, or if you're a confirmed fangirl and convention goers, you have to read this book ! I honestly never related to a character like I did to Khloe, and I know I'm not the only one ;o)Give it a chance, you won't regret it !
