Welcome to the home of Christian romance author Jill Kemerer.

May 2015

Ahh…spring. Northern Ohio can be tricky this time of year. My son had a baseball tournament in late April, and we wore winter coats, scarves, hats, blankets, yet we still froze! Thankfully, the weather finally warmed to let the trees flower.


Last month my debut novel, Small-Town Bachelor, released. Thank you for making it such a terrific month. If you missed any of the stops on the blog tour, they are all linked on the Events page. Three lovely newspaper articles are also available.


In April the first installment of my serial romance short story, “Love and Other Obstacles” went out for one week exclusively to newsletter subscribers. If you missed it, it’s now linked on the For Readers page. Be sure to sign up for my newsletter to get first looks at future installments and for the Unexpected Family cover reveal.


Have a delightful May!

What's New

I’m putting the final touches on Bryan Sheffield’s book and plotting Sam’s story. Track season is winding down, but baseball? Heating up!

I’m also taking charge of my health. I recommend the My Fitness Pal app to count calories and log exercise. Works for me!
