    Tell us a little about yourself.  Jill Williamson is a novelist, dreamer, and believer. She grew up in Alaska with no electricity, an outhouse, and a lot of mosquitoes. Thankfully it was the land of the midnight sun, and she could stay up and read by the summer daylight that wouldn’t go away. But the winter months left little to do but daydream. Both hobbies set her up to be a writer. Her debut novel, By Darkness Hid, won an EPIC Award, a Christy Award, was a Carol Award finalist, and was named a Best Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror novel of 2009 by VOYA magazine. Jill has served alongside her youth pastor husband for the past twelve years and loves working with teenagers, especially to encourage young writers. She gives writing workshops at libraries, schools, camps, and churches.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  Last year, my ladies Bible study group completed Beth Moore’s study on the book of Daniel. As we learned about the young royals who were taken from Jerusalem to be inducted into the Babylonian culture, I couldn’t help but imagine how some of the teen guys in our youth group would fare in such a situation. This train of thought sent me brainstorming the story of CAPTIVES. I wanted to write the story of three brothers, Mason, Levi, and Omar, and how each reacted differently to such an experience. Mason’s character was going to parallel Daniel’s. I wanted Levi to be searching for his fiancé and Omar to be the one who totally adapts to the Babylonian-like culture. Our country today has a very Babylonian “me” mentality, and I wanted to explore themes in connection with that. I also feel very strongly about the spread of AIDS and wanted to write about the disease and raise questions without preaching and condemning anyone. All of those thoughts came together to create the idea in CAPTIVES, a story filled with suspense, action, romance, and a race against the clock.
