The Recorder Online hopes you will enjoy Jill Pertler’s “Slices of Life.”
Pertler is an award-winning freelance writer, author, photographer and syndicated columnist. She lives in northern Minnesota, mostly because her family does, and she’d miss them if she moved somewhere warmer, like Iowa. Still, a girl can dream. She shares her life, her home and just about everything else with her husband, four kids, cat and dog.
She has touched people’s hearts and funny bones with her self-syndicated column, “Slices of Life,” since 2002. It is currently printed in over 75 newspapers throughout the Midwest. Loyal followers of the column know that Jill writes it for regular folks, like her, who know the meaning of hard work, do the best with what they have, love their families with their whole heart and somehow manage to squeeze in time to appreciate and laugh at the small moments that make life worthwhile. One should never be too full for dessert. You don’t have to eat the whole pie, but you probably have room for a small slice.
Pertler is the author of “The Do-It-Yourselfer’s Guide to Self-Syndication: Using Secrets, Shortcuts, Strategies & Psychology to get your Column in Print,” (There’s a mouthful!) Her work has appeared in numerous publications including “Chicken Soup for the Soul,” “Talking Stick Literary Anthology,” “Women’s World,” “Living North Magazine,” “WOW – Women on Writing,” and “Funds for Writers.” She recently collaborated with her business partner to complete the photography for a children’s board book, “Niimiwin,” written to teach very young children about Native American culture. When not writing, she is an award-winning mother, wife and queen – and she’s got the tiara to prove it!
