Author Biography

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 Administration), 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 when she 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.

Jax is the author of the award-winning Larkin's Letters and Ryan's Letters, two contemporary romance novels that have had critical acclaim from reviewers, with both averaging 4.8/5 stars on Amazon and Goodreads. She is currently writing her third novel and aspires to write a screenplay one day.

When not writing, she works full time as a physical therapist assistant and as a mom to her three-year-old son.

Reviewed by Elizabeth Butts for Readers' Favorite

Larkin's Letters by Jax Jillian explores a friendship turned more between actor Ryan Boone and his long time best friend, Larkin. Their friendship has spanned from high school to the fifteen years that he has been in LA becoming a famous actor. They spent years married to other people and going through divorces being each other's strength. Then, tragedy happens and they come together to hold each other up during the hard times. During that time they realize that they were more to each other than they ever thought possible. They were more than just 'love.'

Wow. Give me a second here. I need to collect my thoughts and feelings because I have SO many feelings right now. Those aren't tears, no ... allergies. Must be allergies. Every once in a great while, a book comes along that absolutely guts you. One that you can't put down, although your heart is breaking and you feel physical pain from the emotional roller coaster you are on. A book where you have to step back from reading for a day or two to recover, to mourn, to grieve, and get all your feelings back in order. Larkin's Letters is that book.

Jax Jillian does a phenomenal job of drawing the reader into this love story. I started the book last night and woke up early to continue on the journey, even when I had to set the book down a couple times and just breathe. This is an incredible book, and I wholeheartedly recommend it and will be recommending it to friends and family.
