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.

Review by: Patricia Pilgrim on Aug. 27, 2012 :
Wow! I am in awe of the skill and imagination of the story. Writing the whole thing in a different language, never allowing the adventure to slow down, keeping the characters true thru the whole thing. What talent! I very much enjoyed the read.
