Greetings, Friends

Thank you for visiting my website. Hopefully, this will give you a sense of who I am and what’s in-the-works.

On my blog, “Between the Lines”, (archived under Media) you’ll find behind-the-scenes anecdotes about research and writing that you might enjoy.

If you’re curious about how we get our books to press, check out Sudbury Publishing Group. We’re beginning to offer our services to others. If you’re an aspiring author, this podcast may also be of interest as we talk about process and promotion. 

To follow me on Social Media, please look for my Sutherland identity.

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

To join us on Facebook, just send a Friend Request to Sutherland Series. There I share news, insight about an author’s life, and helpful resources.

And if you want to find me in bookstores, kindly search Jill C. Baker, using the middle initial, since there are a lot of Jill Bakers out there.

Look forward to meeting you!


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.
