I write weird books for teens. Another word for “weird” is speculative fiction, which is fantasy, sci fi, time travel, supernatural, paranormal, alternate history, dystopian, steampunk, or anything else WAY out of the ordinary.
Here I blog about adventures in life and faith: my adventures… adventures of those I’ve met… and your adventures, if you’d like. I have a lot of random thoughts in my head too. This is the place I like to share them.
Looking for clean teen fiction written from a Christian worldview? You found it! Come on in and search my database for books reviews. You can search by genre, gender, age range, or author to find the books you’re looking for.

Tomorrow I'm having two parties for the release of Captives. The first is a Twitter Q&A at 11:00 a.m. Pacific at @JillWilliamson on Twitter. Ask any question you like. Later on that evening, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., I'm having a launch party on Facebook. It's going to be fun, fun, fun. And I am going to give away lots of books! 50 physical books total, and if there's still people who want to win ebooks, I'll give those away too!
This is my final Countdown to Captives post. The next time you'll hear from me, I'll be sharing information about the Captives Facebook Launch Party (click here to join). I've only got three ARCS of Captives left, so today's giveaway will have three winners! Enter to win on the Rafflecopter form below and tell me at least one thing you found interesting about http://thesafelands.com/.
Teen superhero Failstate thought life would get easier now that he'd earned his superhero license. But when a legendary superhero returns from the dead and brings with him a horde of zombies, Failstate is a bit flustered. Dozens of professional superheroes come in from all over the world to help, and most of them are treating Failstate like a kid when New Chayton is HIS town to protect!
I love the Skylar Hoyt books, Steph! And I’m so excited about the special promotion that’s going on. Do you have plans for more books with these characters?
Some of the characters will make guest appearances in other books of mine. In fact, there’s one in my upcoming release, The Revised Life of Ellie Sweet. It’s a little sneaky, though, so I’m curious to see who catches it. But The Reinvention of Skylar Hoyt series is complete at three books.
It's time for another installment of Countdown to Captives! We are only two weeks away from the release day. Some reviews are starting to come in, which is exciting. Here are a few quotes I've gotten so far.
Sophie is a maid in Duchess Ermengard’s castle. She has never understood why the duchess hates her so much until a handsome young man arrives, claiming she is the duchess’s stepdaughter. This young man, Gabe, also wants to rescue her from the duchess’s service and take her to meet his brother, to whom she was betrothed at birth. This could be Sophie’s change to get away from the duchess and be free. But how can she be certain Gabe is who he says he is?
Today's book is Chasing Jupiter by Rachel Coker. (A teen author!) You can learn more about Rachel on her website: http://www.rachelcoker.com. We did a blog tour for Rachel's first book, Interrupted, which you can look at by clicking here.
Chris has returned home to Solitary, North Carolina. They have his mom, so he needs to do what they say—or at least make it look that way. But it’s not easy, especially when they threaten Kelsey, who’s been the only good thing in Chris’s life. What’s a guy to do?
