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.

To learn more about our little publishing venture, please check out Sudbury Publishing Group. Happily, we’ve recently been profiled by IBPA (Independent Book Publishers Association) in their newsletter and on their website.     


I am now an “Approved Author” on Goodreads so I’m excited about that and have turned on my “Ask the Author” feature, so don’t be shy. You can also find me on Book Life and Reedsy Discovery, where you can read the first chapter of my books, plus I’ve created an Author Page on Amazon. Would love to build a following.

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 (or is it to be Meta?), 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.

My blog, “Between The Lines,” is archived under MEDIA. There you’ll find behind-the-scenes anecdotes, musings about writing technique, and insight into my books.  There are also Announcements, Media Mentions, and Excerpts in that drop-down menu. Excerpts include a bit of audio to enhance the experience.

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 which now includes several subscription and library services.

I look forward to getting to know you better and welcome your feedback.


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.
