Barbara E. Hill is a life-long reader and writer of Science Fiction and Fantasy. She launched her writing career when she was 7 years old with her short story “Petunia Potapetal.” After completing this seminal work in first grade she took a short break to embrace puberty. It took a while to sort it all out, as these things do, but she prevailed. By most accounts it was a successful outcome.
Barbara received her B.S. in Organismal Biology from the University of Kansas (what better way to learn how to create realistic space aliens) and went on to finish her M.A. in Creative Writing under the direct tutelage of James Gunn in the early 90’s. She is the author of SONG OF THE LAMKEE and is now working on Book Two: SHADOW OF THE PHADES due to be released in early 2015. She is also working on a new novel project, REVELATION as well as a series of speculative novels, THE BUBBI BOOKS.
Barbara lives with her soul-mate turned husband in an antique stone farmhouse in Bucks County, PA that boasts no less than 6 ancient ghosts with very progressive thoughts on how to live with humans. Among other things, this paranormal situation creates a bubble of magic that feeds her creativity and seems to be a beacon to any critter that needs human intervention. It usually means food, shelter and ridiculous veterinary bills. The farm is her dream home and when she is not writing or deep in the weeds of her consulting work, it consumes the majority of her free time since she is addicted to her horses and all manner of fauna. She rides her horses whenever she can, loves to figure skate, and is passing fair at gardening. Barbara can, on occasion, be found doting on her son when he comes home from college to do laundry and she dabbles in the kitchen in order to keep up with her culinary-school trained husband.
She began NobleFusion in the dawn of 1994 and holds the expanded collective as her favorite authors and the Principle Founders among her closest friends.
