Known for the emotional intensity of her stories and the depth of her characters, Jill Marie Landis is considered one of the country's foremost authors of romance and women's fiction.

Her career in publishing began in 1988 with the historical romance, SUNFLOWER, the first of her many books to earn distinguished awards and slots on such national bestseller lists as USA Today's Top 50 and the New York Times' Bestsellers Plus.

A seven time Romance Writers of America Finalist for the RITA Award in both Single Title Historical and Contemporary, she is a Golden Heart as well as a Rita Winner. In 2005, her hardcover novel, HEARTBREAK HOTEL, was chosen by the American Library Association’s Booklist Magazine as one of the Top Ten Romances of 2005, by Library Journal as one of the Top Five Best Romances of 2005, and by RWA as a Rita Finalist in the Single Title Contemporary.

Jill Marie has penned five Inspirational Historical Romances. With stories set in Texas in the 1870's the author added an element of faith as the heart of the novel. Written for Harlequin’s Steeple Hill and also Zondervan, the novels contain all of the rich characterization, page turning tension, and heartwarming family drama that has made her previous books “keepers.”

In 2011, Bell Bridge Books launched Jill Marie’s current project, the Tiki Goddess Mystery Series. Set on Kauai, Hawaii, Book #1, Mai Tai One On, starts off the fun. In this hilarious series centered around the antics of an aging troop of hula dancers and a rundown tiki bar, tourists rub shoulders with locals and celebs, the surf hits the beach with a hypnotic rhythm matched by the beat of exotic drums, and the hum of ukulele music floats on the trade winds. Who knew murder and mayhem existed in paradise?

Jill Marie Landis resides full time in Hawaii with her hubby, Steve. When she’s not writing or sitting on the beach reading, she enjoys raising orchids, working in her garden, playing the ukulele and dancing the hula.
