Talented TV consumer reporter; life coach and housewife turns book writer in a big way.
Jill Farmer was the consumer reporter on KTVI-Fox 2 for 10 years. Raising two daughters and tending to her family in Creve Coeur, she switched to a career as as Life Coach and wrote her first book "There's Not Enough Time," and other lies we tell ourselves. Watch Jill's brief U Tube video about organizing your life. Patch caught up to Farmer for a 1 on 1 interview: Patch.com. What was the inspiration for your book? Jill Farmer. It really started with my own life.

So you think you're a good writer? If you've got something to say, we have the platform where you can express those thoughts and ideas: Ladue-Frontenac Patch. We can use your views and musings.

With The Huffington Post, the idea was to take the sort of conversations found around dinner tables and at book parties–about politics and books and art and music and food and sex–and put them online, open them up, and invite interesting people to participate, creating a one-stop site for news and opinion with an attitude, in real-time.
