About the show
“Fairy of the Night and Still,” was written in Spain (Jerez de la Frontera), while studying flamenco. Upon return to Canada, Jill tucked the story away and forgot about it. Many years later she unearthed it, when preparing to move. Like meeting an old friend again, Jill reacquainted herself with FONTAS and enjoyed the process of reviving and revising the manuscript. In her third draft, she asked those around her to take a read. She hired an editor and then two illustrators – one for the book cover and the other for the interior. After final edit, and when it was ‘stage’ ready, she published it. Now she’s bringing it to the stage!
“Fairy of the Night and Still,” is suitable for all ages and is available for purchase in print book and ebook format. In December 2018, this story will be available in audio (ADX/Amazon).
