Jill Carroll & Nishta Mehra have been together for over a decade. In the summer of 2012, they embarked on the journey of parenthood when they adopted their newborn son, Shiv. They fill their lives with friends, books, writing, food, and fantasy football, and are proud pet parents to an old rat terrier named Dolly and three snuggly cats. Jill is a hunter and an angler; Nishta is an amateur cook and gym rat. They live in a suburb of Houston, Texas.
