Welcome to the home of Christian romance author Jill Kemerer.

November 2015


Every year I say the same thing, “How can it be November already?” I’ve barely made peace with summer ending, and I’m just not ready for winter!


But the outdoor cushions have been stored in the attic, the lawn was mowed one last time, and a corner of my soul welcomes the following months. Instead of diving right into the Christmas spirit, I’m focusing on being thankful all month long.


My big project last weekend was developing pictures and putting them in photo albums. Now that I store so many on my smart phone, I find myself getting prints less often. I finally ordered over two years worth of prints, and I spent all Saturday placing almost 600 pictures in albums! Crazy, I know! But I love looking through old pictures, so for me, it’s worth it.


Happy news! I recently signed my first two-book contract with Love Inspired for the fourth and fifth books in the Lake Endwell series. I couldn’t be happier!


My third book, Her Small-Town Romance releases in April 2016. I’ll be sharing the cover soon in my newsletter, along with the third installment of my serial short romance, “Love and Other Obstacles.” What are you waiting for? Subscribe!


Have a blessed November!

What's New

I’m polishing the fourth Lake Endwell book (tentative title) Yuletide Redemption and getting ready to plot the fifth book.

We’re enjoying college football (Go Blue! Michigan Wolverines!), but my NFL team, the Detroit Lions, is having a BAD year. :(
