Jill Pascoe has a lifetime love of a good ghost story and has always been involved with history and architecture. She grew up in Winnipeg, Canada and moved to Montreal where she earned a B.A. Honors in Archaeology with a minor in History from McGill University. Upon graduation Jill moved to London, England where she achieved a M.A. in Museum Studies from University College London. Armed with these degrees Jill entered into the world of historic sites, museum, and historic preservation, encountering something unusual wherever she turned...ghosts. After working at several historic houses and sites in Canada, England, New Jersey, and Virginia a pattern emerged of ghost stories being told at all these historic places. Yet there was never any books published on these public sites, and the idea of writing books about haunted historic sites was born.
When Jill and her husband made the move to Louisiana she knew she was finally in the right location to write such a book. It was while living in Baton Rouge, Louisiana that she wrote her first book, Louisiana's Haunted Plantations, which was published in 2004.
When Jill moved to Phoenix, Arizona with her husband she knew she wanted to write another book, and after touring the state and exploring the historic sites, she wrote Arizona's Haunted History.
Jill lives in Gilbert, Arizona with her husband Josh, their son Adam, their daughter Charlotte and their three cats. In her spare time she reads, writes and travels.
