Jill K. Sayre had lived all of her life in a small town in California, but moved to Texas for a new adventure. Little did she know how much she’d fall in love with her new town, especially with the beautiful creek that runs through it.
The Fairies of Turtle Creek is her first novel, set in Highland Park, Texas. Drawing on the history of the area, she sets the stage for her story, weaving in folklore and modern fairy beliefs. Magical realism is a favorite of Jill’s, to read and write. She also loves nature, art, music, and seeking everyday beauty that is hidden in plain sight. Jill holds a degree in art and elementary education, specializing in gifted students. She currently teaches 6th grade at a local public school.
Jill is a professional writer, freelance editor, and educator. She also is an educational speaker on such subjects as "Writing Your First Book" and "Helping Your Child Become a Better Reader and Writer."
Jill lives in Dallas, Texas with her husband, three kids, two cats, and a vizsla.
“I am a writer, mom to three, a public school teacher,
a lover of nature, art, music, and everyday beauty.
I write about the epiphanies of life, which are simple and marvelous all at the same time.”
—Jill K. Sayre, Author
