Welcome to the home of Christian romance author Jill Kemerer.

July 2015


Do you love July? I do!


We spend a good chunk of the year enduring winter, so the blast of heat mid-year is always welcome.  I’ve been happily pinning summer recipes and backyard projects on Pinterest. Am I actually making any of these recipes or working on the projects? Of course not! It’s fun to dream, though.


Guess what? My author copies of Unexpected Family arrived! It’s available for pre-order on various retail sites. You can access information about all of my books on the Books page, or go to my Unexpected Family page for the scoop.


Have a hot, fun July!
