Happy Halloween week, Kings and Queens! I’m so stoked to be here with you! You guys remember Jill right? She was the badass writer who I interviewed a while back about her book The Good Soldier? Well, she’s back with the most epic comeback a writer could probably make… She is…
Michonne From The Walking Dead

So Jill is a lot of things. She’s a writer, she’s a comedian (Seriously, she cracks me up), she’s an actress, and my personal favorite… She’s a fan girl. When she first started telling me about her love for The Walking Dead, it caught me be surprise. We’re both huge Buffy fans and that’s kind of where our friendship started but shortly after listening to her talk about her love for the ship Richonne, it became clear that this… This was next level.
Are you ready?
Will Michonne and Sasha make it out alive?
The world may never know… I can promise you that Jill and her sister made it out unharmed. Not only that, but you can find her in all her amazing glory on her blog, her Twitter and even through clicking either of the links below and buying one of her highly coveted novels.
Until next time… here’s some adorable behind the scenes gifs of Jill.
I don’t care who you are… You need a copy of this book in your closet. I’m serious. Girl, guy, vampire.. Jill Robi wrote this book in a way that almost anyone can fall in love with it. Even if you’re a villain. Brace yourselves, this Friday I’m gonna fan girl about Jill Robi and her book The Good Soldier… again.
Fan Friday: The Good Soldier
Jill Robi first caught my attention by the viral Tumblr post with her and James Marsters. She was my intangible, unbelievable internet hero. That is… Until she found me on Facebook and sent me a message. It was like the fan girl universe was aligning and falling into my favor. Not too soon after, I found out that not only was she as big a Buffy the Vampire Slayer fan as I was but she was also a writer. Dream come true. So, I preordered her latest book, sent a Facebook message, and a few weeks later we were seated in my favorite coffee shop for a personal interview about her latest masterpiece The Good Soldier.
Note to My Readers: This interview was recorded and was a 2 hour audio file. What started out as an interview turned into what could only be described as two women writers conversing over a bottle of wine, without the wine. Hahaha! While I obviously didn’t include TWO HOURS of awesome-ness, I do boldface and parenthesis a lot of finer notes of the conversation. The one thing that I love about Jill which is what makes her the topic of this fan Friday is that her personality is such a huge thing. It’s very alive and thriving and I felt like this interview wouldn’t have been complete without some of those little windows into who she is as a woman, a writer, and a fan girl.
