Substack Featured Publication 2023

Transatlantic transcendentalism. Half Irish, half American, all trouble. Essay stories from the Oxford countryside about artificial intelligence, natural stupidity, books, art, words, trees, plants, awkward encounters with other people, student memoirs, trying to save a village pub—and all the other detritus of a life lived. No brand, no message.

"Jill is a sharp, perceptive writer and an immaculate thinker of the rarest breed."
