NEW Trilogy Coming Soon!

Read the fascinating new trilogy by award-winning author Jill Engledow.

The Maui Trilogy: The Island Decides, A Dollar and Love, and Rose’s War. 


I’m Jill Engledow, an author in love with Maui history, and I write books to share that love with you.

For years, I’ve written nonfiction about Maui, from news stories to books. Now I’m working on novels, using what I’ve learned about this “world’s best island” to tell tales from earlier generations. The first two books of The Maui Trilogy are now available, and the third is on the way. Meanwhile, please explore this website to learn more about my nonfiction books.

Take care and keep reading!



Haleakala: A History of the Maui Mountain was awarded a 2013 Independent Book Publisher Award.

I spent a decade researching this book, learning about Maui’s magical mountain and the people who have loved it. I dug through Haleakala National Park files and picture collections, interviewed old timers, read historical accounts of crater trips and characters, and wandered the park and its trails in person.

This excerpt includes stories and vintage photos of the Louis von Tempsky family, famous for their colorful lifestyle, gracious hospitality and malama (care) for the land.
