Meet the Editors: Jillian Bell

Jillian Bell - EC Editor

Many authors tell of writing stories from the time they could hold a pencil or, in the great oral tradition, making them up even before then. Jillian has been editing since she first realized the power of the red crayon. She has been with EC since 2009, but has worked in literary, academic and legal editing since [censored—it's a woman's prerogative not to reveal her age, after all].

Jillian lives and loves in NYC, which she insists on claiming is the best city in the whole world, but she's up for traveling to confirm. Oddly, she roots for Pittsburgh sports teams (and hunky tennis players). Jilly would spend all day reading in the sun, curled up like a cat if she could, and she loves helping authors tell their stories so others can do so. In her favorite stories, nothing is too taboo, and the more the merrier in the bedroom.

Okay, you convinced me. It was just the nudge I needed. In my next story I'll add a fourth and maybe a fifth to the bedroom scenes.

Thanks for posting the info about this terrific editor.

I knew there was a reason you liked me adding Griffin to the Ranulf and Dante mix! LOL

I live above Pittsburgh--sports are ALWAYS on our TV!

Jilly is the best...even if she roots for Pittsburgh teams :)

Reading in the sun with lots of folks playing together. Sounds warm and very fuzzy.
