Author bio - the long(er) version

Raised around the rolling hills of West Virginia, few things sparked Jill Perry Carpenter’s imagination like a blank sheet of paper just waiting to be filled.

Growing up with three sisters and a variety of animals provided ample fodder for Jill's stories, which she has entertained her friends and family with at every opportunity.

Jill finally decided to officially document some of these stories and in 2014 became a published author.

She has begun with a series of stories inspired by a pit bull she adopted off of death row (pictured above), and by the scenes and unique atmosphere of the inner city she lives in. The Street Dog is the first title in the series, to be followed by many more.
