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.

Review by:Dorothy Burgtorf
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.
