Jill Hand

Bewildering Stories biography

Jill Hand is a former newspaper reporter and editor who lives in New Jersey. She has edited more than forty books for Whitechapel Press about ghosts, true crime, mysterious disappearances and bizarre creatures like sea serpents and giant birds.

She is the author of the novel Rosina and the Travel Agency, about intrepid teenage time travelers who get up to shenanigans in 1947 San Francisco. She is currently working on her second novel, which features a hairless blue horse that was discovered in South Africa in 1860 and involves forgery and deceit, as well as visits to two distinctly odd nightclubs that actually existed in Paris in the 1890’s.

She writes all the time, mostly horror and humor. Her short story "Two Strokes of a Pen" will be published shortly by Oddville Press.

When she's not writing, she's reading. Her favorite authors are Shirley Jackson, Donna Tartt, Neil Gaiman, Stephen King, Ray Bradbury, H.P. Lovecraft, M.R. James, Charles Dickens and William Thackeray, among others.
