When Jillian was at school, she found history classes incredibly boring so she dropped the subject as soon as she could!
So how did she end up as the author writing a series of children’s books about a subject she disliked the most?
When she delved into her Chinese heritage for a family reunion, she stumbled on the most amazing stories about the emperors, warriors, artists, and inventors that make up the long and colourful history of China. She realised that history doesn’t have to just be about facts and dates. It can be as exciting, gripping and fascinating as the best fiction adventure stories. She realised that in the very word ‘history’ sits the word she's always loved: ‘story’.
Inspired, she decided to bring stories from Chinese history to life. No dates, no dry details - just interesting and easy to read stories that children as young as two can enjoy and hopefully, learn a fact or two in the process.
Her greatest wish is that children and adults alike will have as much fun reading her books as much as she's had writing them.
