Owner Bio Fiction Addiction is owned and managed by Jill Hendrix. Mrs. Hendrix grew up in Greenville and was 1991 valedictorian of Southside High School and one of its first International Baccalaureate diploma recipients. She went on to graduate magna cum laude from Yale University with a B.A. in History.
She worked briefly in the Editorial Department of St. Martin's Press and then for a series of internet startups in New York City, including Juno Online Services. The startup bug proved contagious and she decided in 2001 to return home and open her own business, Fiction Addiction, which she has managed ever since.
In 2009, she launched the succeessful Book Your Lunch author event program, which has brought bestselling authors like Elin Hilderbrand and Dorothea Benton Frank to Greenville and introduced readers to debut novelists like Beth Hoffman. She is currently serving as the Treasurer of the The South Carolina Academy of Authors and is the immediate past president of the Southern Independent Booksellers Alliance.
