Jilly Wood was born and raised in Derbyshire, England, a county that’s best known for Mr. Darcy but is also home to ancient castles, deep caverns veined with rare gemstones, wild moors studded with otherworldly rock formations, and a whole host of supernatural legends. All these elements are to be found in Jilly’s fantastic adventure stories of chivalry, rivalry, power, and love.
Jilly now lives quietly with her husband of many years in a leafy corner of historic North London. She writes epic fantasy romance from the comfort of her sofa, aided by her trusty laptop, a vivid imagination, and a steady supply of coffee and wine.
Jilly is a Daphne award winner and RWA Golden Heart finalist. The Seeds of Power is her first novel, and the first book in the Elan Intrigues fantasy romance adventure series. If you like strong heroines, chivalrous heroes, natural magic, and life-or-death stakes, you’ll love the epic battle for control of elan, mysterious golden beans that bring untold wealth and power.
