Secret news - not secret any longer!

I have been holding some really important secret news close to my heart since mid-February. It's been KILLING me to not be able to share with you! Because you guys know, I share everything! But today I got permission to announce it....

I'm writing a book!
(Two books, actually!)

I have signed a contract with Lark Publishing to write two books. The first will be part of the amazing Master Class series on beaded ropes. I couldn't be more honored to be included in this series of books by designers like Diane Fitzgerald, Laura McCabe, Marcia DeCoster, Sherry Serafini, Rachel Nelson-Smith, Maggie Meister, Sabine Lippert...and me! 
It will be released in the fall of 2012.

And then I go right back to work! Because I'll have a second book focused on advanced herringbone coming out 12-18 months later. 

Way back, as far as when I was 8 years old, I said I was going to be an author one day. And now I will be. Dreams do come true!


  1. Yippeeeee! Happy Dance! I can officially say I knew you "when." CONGRATS!

  2. How exciting!! Can't wait!!!!

  3. Way to go, Jill! As a proud owner of many of your kits, I look forward to your books!

  4. Oh WOW!!! This is so neat. I absolutely LOVE your designs. Fall 2012 is so far away. ):
