Jean Gill's picture

Jean Gill


Jean Gill is a Welsh writer and photographer living in the south of France with two scruffy dogs, a beehive named 'Endeavour', a Nikon D750 and a man. For many years, she taught English and was the first woman to be a secondary headteacher in Wales. She is mother or stepmother to five children so life was hectic.
Publications are varied, including prize-winning poetry and novels, military history, translated books on dog training, and a cookery book on goat cheese. With Scottish parents, an English birthplace and French residence, she can usually support the winning team on most sporting occasions.

Jean Gill recommends
Anticipation (2021)
Melodie Winawer
"This wise, many-layered novel made me fall in love with Greece all over again. On the one hand, this is a pacy thriller, a historical tale of pursuit and murder across the centuries. On another level, [it's] thought-provoking...I found myself re-considering my views on medical ethics, reincarnation, and military occupation. Before reading Anticipation I knew nothing of Mystras or its history but am now inspired to learn more! I highly recommend this novel."
