Biography

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.

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.

Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
The first story I wrote was in the first grade for Young Authors. It was a terrible, shitty story that had my mother as a witch. I don't think she ever saw it, and it had no reflection on my childhood. I just had no ideas, clearly.

Though I wrote over the years, including lyrics, I didn't write anything good until the eighth grade, so I'll say age fourteen. I wrote a poetry anthology, and won The Young Authors Award.
What's the story behind your latest book?
Chicago business mogul Nicholas Sloane appears to have it all: money, sex appeal, and hordes of women eagerly seeking access to both. Only one thing threatens Nic’s empire, the vigilante known as Valiant. This mysterious figure seems determined to foil all of Nic’s more dubious business ventures, and it’s beginning to hurt the bottom line. There seems only one thing left for Nic to do.

Enter Reese Alexander, a young woman whose powers could rival even those of Valiant. A lifetime of poverty and neglect have left her with little confidence in her abilities, but Nic is positive she’s just the person to vanquish his adversary.

Will Nic find success in overthrowing Valiant with an unsuspecting Reese?

Available on Amazon [for the first 90 days]!
