About Cooper Hill

Cooper Hill walked out of the dust in a semi-arid desert seeking a wider Universe beyond the beyond. She has worked in surgery as a scrub tech/circulator, a flower shop, chemical plant, bronze foundry, and for 20+ years was a successful bronze artist and writer of prose, showing and selling in venues and galleries across the greater Southwest.

In mid-careers, Cooper and her husband took a two and a half year sabbatical with Peace Corps, to work in Burundi, East Africa, where she earned the JFK Volunteer of the Year Services Award (as her second-self, A. Pauwels). She has written a non-fiction book, Turtle Tushies in the Land of Banana Beer, A Peace Corps Memoir, about their adventures in fish-farming among a heart-warming people.

Cooper loves the solitude and process of creative writing. She has completed seven dystopian future-fiction/sci-fi action-adventure and space opera novels, replete with strong female protagonists, side-kicks, heroines, heroes and an abundant and appropriate number of villains.

She enjoys writing/reading, disc-golf, friends, long walks with the dog, painting, kayaking and good movies.

Cooper currently greets the sun each morning with her fun-loving Mom, and her latest rescue dog, a bundle-of-energy-and-joy black-cock-a-poo, Cricket. They reside on a beautiful tree-covered hill above a quiet valley.

About the Series: The Spidy Chronicles

With courage and insights beyond her years, she joins a band of rebels and follows an ancient track of prophecy to freedom beyond the Void, across the great Billows sea in Escape to the Billows, only to face new dangers and threats in the promised paradise of the Newzland in Stones of Fire. Will they find the freedom they seek, or will they be forced to run and fight..forever?

I was hooked by the very first page and the never stop action that followed. 'Spidy' is a refreshing adventure for all ages. The engaging characters pull you right into the story. I read far into the night.
I eagerly await 'Escape to the Billows' to continue the
breathtaking saga of my new found friends.
Cooper Hill has just become my new favorite author.

Enjoyed the book - was pulled into the story from the first chapter to the cliff-hanger ending - couldn't turn the pages fast enough. Anxious to continue the adventure in The Billows!

I totally enjoyed this novel. The adventure gave you no space to take a breath, and the characters were great. I loved the language - just different enough to make you read carefully.
