Sadly, after a long period of illness which she handled with unfailing good humour and fortitude, Jill died on Friday April 6.Jill McGown was the author of the Lloyd and Hill police procedural series set around a fictionalised Corby. There was a one-off tv show starring Life on Mars' Philip Glenister as Lloyd a few years ago on ITV.
We are in discussion with Una Adams, Jill’s sister, regarding the future of the site, and over the next few weeks we hope to let you know where we are going with this. In the meantime no doubt your thoughts will be with Jill’s family at this sad time.
There's lots of information about her books and settings on her website, hopefully this will be maintained for a while.
