Jill Rutherford loves books. Reading them, writing them and browsing through them. Thousands of books later, Jill is writing her own.
After years of normal life in England, doing normal things, Jill surprised her friends by packing up her life and moving to Japan for a year and didn't come home for seven. Now she writes unusual books about Japan. Japanese culture wrapped around intriguing stories, adventure and mystery. If you like books that include women samurai, time-travel, interwoven stories of modern and old Japan that mingle together and bring you a closer understanding of that unique culture, Jill's books might just hit the spot for you.
Or you could try Jill's popular memoir of her seven years in Japan. She went there with little money, no visa or prospect of one, no job and only one Japanese friend and created her own successful English school, got her visas and prospered.
Jill now lives on the South Coast of England and when she's not writing books you'll find her walking her dog, eating out, drinking red wine and trying not to worry about her book ratings!
Book Three of my Secret Samurai Trilogy is now published.
