Greetings, Friends

Thank you for visiting my website. Hopefully, this will give you a sense of who I am and what I’m working on.

My blog, “Between The Lines,” is archived under MEDIA. There you’ll find behind-the-scenes anecdotes and musings about my books.  There are also Announcements, Media Mentions, and Excerpts in that drop-down menu.


I recently became an “Approved Author” on Goodreads so I’m excited about that. I have turned on my “Ask the Author” feature, so don’t be shy. Please Follow.

On Twitter, I post in my main character’s voice, so she (Sarah Sutherland) can talk about her adventures. You can follow her/me at Sarah Sutherland Book Series @SeriesSarah.

To join us on Facebook, simply send a Friend Request to Sutherland Series. There I share insights into an author’s life and publishing journey as well as bits of interesting research.

To find my titles in online bookstores (paperback and ebook) please search Jill C. Baker, using the middle initial, since there are a lot of “Jill Bakers” out there. I’ve also provided direct links by store and title on my Buy Now page.

To learn more about our little publishing company and related services, check out Sudbury Publishing Group.


I look forward to getting to know you better. Read on!

About The Author

Jill C. Baker grew up in a small town in New York state where, as a teenager, she wrote a weekly newspaper column and reviewed summer stock theater. She pursued her interest in media and writing at Boston University’s College of Communication, and upon graduation, moved to Southern California to work in the film industry. With a relocation to San Francisco and eventually back to Boston, she returned to her newspaper roots, serving as a copywriter and promotion manager for leading publishers such as Hearst and Harte-Hanks.

Following a detour into the non-profit sector, she became Director of Marketing for a digital publishing provider serving the magazine industry. Accustomed to rigorous deadlines and stressful commutes, she often wondered what it would be like to simply disappear and do something else — thus the motivation for the Sutherland Series.

She and her husband live in New England where they’ve raised two sons and several cats. The rich historic setting provides valuable inspiration.

Experience in a coming storm provides excellent example of how to foreshadow in writing.

How Color Infused the Writing of ABSENT

May 6, 2020 When I was a student in communications school, I produced a short film called “Green,” which I copyrighted as part of a series about colors. “Green” conveyed the contrast between the beauty of nature (even before the term was popularized to mean environmental concerns) and the harsh … Continue reading How Color Infused the Writing of ABSENT
