Books by Jill Ross Nadler

(And one of her noms de plume Riley Roam) 

Hi there...

I’m Jill Ross Nadler and I really am a Storyologist!

When I’m not dreaming up magical videos or spinning stories on stage, I spend my time writing books for kids. 


Many of these books go along with the Seven-Way Story Adventures that are in my Adventure Library.
