I’m Hilary, and I used to be such a practical girl. Then I let the stories out.
Now I create worlds, people, and problems that are grounded in real life, if you accept that real life has magic around every turn.
I was born to parents who made a habit of taking roads less traveled. But I was also a first child, and an independent, willful child, so I’ve made a habit of taking a few roads on my own.
Now I teach Creative Writing, English, and AP Literature, write whenever and wherever I can, and read as much as my eyes can handle. I play superheroes and dress up games and read books in bed with my own independent, willful children and play at homesteading and world traveling with my wonderful soulmate of a husband. I tend to ignore laundry and dirty dishes.
If you are interested in reviewing my books, interviewing me, or simply have a question or comment, please contact me below.
