About Jill






Jill at Stonehenge

Jill Pritchett, professional watercolorist and published author, grew up in the Appalachian Mountains of southwest Virginia. She became a professional artist in San Francisco in the early 1970s and was first published in a national equestrian magazine in the 1980s.

An enthusiastic outdoor athlete, Jill also pursues her loves of rock climbing, caving, horseback riding and whitewater kayaking. True to her nature, Jill met her husband, Dennis, on an expedition to climb Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa. Jill has returned home to the Mountains of Southwest Virginia - the perfect setting for her novels.

Jill's watercolors are a constant reflection of her changing world. Another of her passions is world travel, and she has enjoyed being a travel coordinator since 2003, escorting tourists to her favorite European destinations. When she is not painting commissioned portraits, Jill is creating watercolor memories of her travels. But it's her love of outdoor sports that inspires her writing. Her current adventures with writing fiction are well-placed in the Appalachian Mountains where an oddball assortment of characters climb, cave, and paddle their way throughout each mystery.
