Jillee Bio Portrait for JilleeBook 2

Jill Nystul is the inspiration for the main character and story Jillee Bean & the One Good Thing. She is the second youngest in a family of eight and a surfer girl from Huntington Beach, CA. She has worked as a TV news reporter, a producer of television talk shows, a “professional Mom,” blogger, and entrepreneur. Since 2011, she has been the creative force behind the savvy do-it-yourself blog “One Good Thing by Jillee” which each day shares one good thing with her readers. With millions of people following her successful blog every month, Putnam Books made a deal with Jill to publish a book about her life and blog that will be available November 2014. Jill and her husband have four children and live just outside Park City, Utah.



Samantha Mae Hollister has loved art and storytelling her whole life. She grew up in sunny southern California, a tomboy and the youngest of seven children. She studied illustration at Brigham Young University then moved to Burbank, CA working as a third-generation Disney artist for several years. She illustrated countless storybooks, one of her greatest honors being the Disney’s Brother Bear Little Golden Book. Jillee Bean & the One Good Thing is Samantha’s first book serving as both author and artist. Like Jillee Bean, she too finds joy in making the world a better, more beautiful place a little bit at a time. She currently lives in Utah with her husband, their two children, and a Mini Aussie named Pixel.
