About the Author:

Jill G Hall’s first novel, The Black Velvet Coat, was released in October 2015. Many of her poems have been published in a variety of anthologies and her routine blog postings share thoughts about the art of practicing a creative lifestyle. As a visual artist, Jill fashions mosaics and dabbles in mixed media collage. The creativity workshops she facilitates are for artists of all types. She also enjoys curating art shows at Inspirations Gallery featuring original work by San Diego artists. Jill currently chairs the Creative Catalyst Program at the San Diego Foundation. She resides in San Diego with her husband, Jerry and beagle-bassett, Lucy.

About the Book:

Twenty-eight-year-old struggling San Francisco artist Anne McFarland is determined to get a one-woman show, even though no one, including herself, believes she can do it. But when she buys a coat at a thrift shop with a key in its pocket, strange, even magical, occurrences begin to unfold, and she is inspired to create her best work ever.

Fifty years earlier, it’s 1963, and the coat’s original owner, young heiress Sylvia Van Dam, is headed toward a disastrous marriage with a scoundrel. In a split-second reaction, she does the unimaginable, which propels her on a trip of self-discovery to nature-filled Northern Arizona. When Anne and Sylvia’s lives intersect, they are both forced to face their fears―and, in the process, realize their true potential.
