Jax Jillian was born in Albuquerque, NM but before she turned a year old, her parents moved east to Harrisburg, PA where she was raised. After graduating high school in 1995, Jax attended La Salle University (1999, B.A., Communication), Temple University (2001, M.Ed, Sport & Recreation Admin), and Central Pennsylvania College (2005, A.A.S., Physical Therapist Assistant).
She settled in Philadelphia, PA with her husband and son before she became a writer. Jax found a passion for motion pictures at a young age and remembers "getting lost" in films, and that passion ultimately led her down the path to writing. She loves "getting lost" in her writing and particularly loves writing heartfelt love stories with a touch of tragedy which she believes is the key to truly reaching readers.
