Jill Shumka

I sew and glue the books together. I press the pages tight and presto, out comes a finished book for really nice people to take home and cherish.

Favourite book
The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini

Six-word memoir
My family was everything. And cake!

Deepest fear
Staying this scared forever.
