Jill McCorkle

 

Jill McCorkle has the distinction of having had her first two novels published on the same day in 1984. Of these novels, The New York Times Book Review said, “One suspects the author of The Cheer Leader is a born novelist; with July 7th, she is also a full grown one.” Since then McCorkle has published three other novels and four collections of short stories.

“Not only is this one of the most vibrant literary communities I have ever had the honor of visiting, it is also one of the most FUN! Great food and conversation with people who embrace and celebrate all areas of the arts. It was a great privilege to be there and I would go back in a minute!”
—Jill McCorkle
