Welcome to the home of Christian romance author Jill Kemerer.

September 2015


My second novel, Unexpected Family, released September 1, 2015! It’s a contemporary Christian romance set in Lake Endwell, Michigan. Tom Sheffield gets a surprise visit from his ex-wife, Stephanie, and learns he has a four-year-old daughter. For all the scoop–purchase links, back cover copy, downloadable discussion questions, reviews and more–go to my Unexpected Family page.


In other September news, college football is back! And so is pumpkin spice, cooler weather, crackling leaves and school. In other words, the good life. I have plenty of events this month, so pop over to my EVENTS page!


Congratulations to Dana Michael! Dana won the Unexpected Family Gift Package Giveaway.


*I was interviewed on television. The video is below if you’d like to check it out.*

Happy September!
