Jill Steele is the author of "Blood on the Orchids: Murder and Mystery on the Island of Hawaii" published in February of 2018. It is available on Amazon in paperback & Kindle. She moved to Hawaii from Los Angeles 25 years ago to work at an orchid and tropical flower nursery.
She lives on the Big Island with her husband and her poi dog Luna. She started her business Hawaiian Magic Tropical Flowers at the same time she started her family, back in the early days of internet shopping. All of the orchids mentioned in her book can be purchased through her website.
When she’s not working, you’ll find her stand-up paddling and snorkeling in one of the most beautiful bays of Hawaii and learning to play guitar under the watchful gaze of her Surf Punk husband.
“People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.”
- MARCUS AURELIUS
