Meet the author and creator of Dilly


Rena Jones always loved writing. She spent most of the 1990s writing letters to pen pals. Around the same time, she self-published three newsletters for pen pals. She began writing for children in 2003, after visiting Glacier National Park in Montana. A little mountain goat inspired her to write a story about him and her love for writing children’s stories began.

Rena lives in Bigfork, Montana with her husband, four children, and two cats. She is a home educator to her children and has been doing so for 11 years. She also enjoys photography, wildlife watching, camping, national parks, kayaking, music and even sour pickles. When not writing or taking pictures, she is usually being entertained by the crazy wildlife that frequents her mountain home.

A New Job for Dilly is her first published work.

Thanks for posting the details on the book, Elysabeth. It can be ordered through 4RV Publishing, or online at places like Amazon.

However, if you'd like an autographed copy from me, I have extras. Just visit my website for details on how to order with PayPal.

I hope everyone enjoys the book and I'm looking forward to more of Dilly's A to Z adventures!

Traveling a blog tour - does it feel like getting to know pen pals in person?

And for Dilly, a job opportunity as tour guide. Would not last long as pickle packer (too few would be packed^_^ ). Hmm, another 't' job, taste tester? Start out with some briny dill pickles - I have another jar for you here - enjoy. ^_^
