Jill Shultz (born March 12, 1964)

Born in Brooklyn, New York before it was cool, Jill Shultz now lives upstate and will always be equal parts city and country: defining moments in her life occurred in the cafeteria of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and a cave in New Hampshire. She has a B.S. in Biology from Cornell University and M.S.T. in Environmental Sciences from Antioch University. For most of her career, she zigzagged between environmental and arts organizations. It seemed she'd bag every independent Audubon Society in New England, but she missed by half. She's been a land steward, zookeeper, the program director of Maine Writers & Publishers Alliance, and always a writer. Plunk her in a chair with a great book or next to a pond with herons or and she can be engrossed for hours.

Angel on the Ropes won a 2013 Rainbow Award as Best B/T & LGBT Fantasy, Paranormal Romance & Sci-fi / Futuristic.

Dazzling trapeze artist Amandine Sand leads a perilous double life. Will her secret—and her choices—save her planet or ruin it?

Amandine walks a high wire between two lives—hobbled by a life-threatening secret. She’s one of the spotted humans wrongly accused of being a plague carrier. These “leopards” are hunted by zealots to protect their offworld colony from the scourge. Despite this threat, Amandine spends her days guiding other leopards to an underground shelter run by the pacifist Seekers. At night, with her own spots hidden, she takes to the air, the one place this extraordinary artist feels free and gloriously alive.

When the persecution of leopards explodes into widespread violence, the Seekers demand more of her time. But her circus is teetering toward bankruptcy and desperately needs her, too. She has no time to breathe... and then she meets a stranger who leaves her breathless. And might just be the biggest risk of all. If her trust is misplaced and she’s unmasked, everyone she loves—and everything she’s fought for—could crash.

Now she must make an irrevocable leap. Without a net.

To survive, Amandine must draw upon everything she’s learned from the circus and Seekers and summon the courage to reveal her true colors. But can a pacifist defend her violent enemies to stop a civil war? And can this reluctant angel fly beyond her limits to save her life, her love, and her world?
