Early in her youth, Jill's aptitude for writing could be found in her work with the High School newspaper. At that time, she had her own advice column, as well as submitted pieces on a variety of topics.
Over time, Jill began contributing written articles to magazines, and providing digital content for online publications such as Spirit Digest, (Ghost Hunters) T.A.P.S. Para Magazine, and Paranormal Underground Magazine.
With a fondness for investigative research and nonfiction works, Jill dove into writing her first book, 207. She wrote the nonfiction account in four months time, while Saints was an arduous, three year investigative project.
Jill's investigative pedigree can be traced back to her (paternal) great-grandfather James J. Perkins (J.J. Perkins), of Methuen, Massachusetts. James was a prominent Special Agent with the FBI from the late 1920's, to early 1940's. SA Perkins is known for his work investigating John Dillinger, Pretty Boy Floyd, Machine Gun Kelly, and Al Capone. He also worked on the Charles Lindbergh baby kidnapping and Urschel kidnapping cases.
Known as one of the original, 'Historic G-men' of the era, Jill's great-grandfather has been mentioned in books, articles and case files pertaining to his bold, brave and dedicated work with the FBI. Refusing to leave his post at the Oklahoma City Bureau and return to his native Massachusetts during an illness, James died in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
Jill has long held the opinion that her great-grandfather had a very keen sense of intuition that he may have utilized as an investigative tool during his career. For a summary of his James' career, please visit: historicalgmen.squarespace.com.
