A life on the road for over 10 years, discovering colourful characters, seemed the impetus for writing short stories. Hill covers several genres of literary fiction: rural fantasy, romance and Sci-Fi. He has several complete novels in revision. Retired from a small business, dealing with other writers in print and copy, he took on telling fictional stories. In the past, he was the publisher of a small community newspaper, winning awards from both the British Columbia Newspaper Association and Canada's National Association for writers, winning Best Editorial. He continues writing and learning these days on a popular writer site, Scribophile, and Spillwords Press.
