As a University of Victoria instructor and psychologist, Jillian Roberts has specialized in medically fragile children. She first co-wrote School Children with HIV/AIDS (Detselig, 1999) with Kathleen Cairns.

As a Child and Adolescent psychologist in Victoria, the UVic educational psychologist has since created an app called Facts of Life and written a book for ages 3-to-6, Where Do Babies Come From?: Our First Talk About Birth (Orca 2015), illustrated by Cindy Revell. It's the first book in her Just Enough series to include topics such as death, cultural diversity, and parental separation or divorce. It was followed by What Happens When a Loved One Dies? Our First Talk About Death (Orca 2016) and What Makes Us Unique? Our First Talk About Diversity (Orca 2016).
