Hilary is one of those writers who simply can’t help it – she is compelled to write. She tried to quit while in her early twenties, but the idea of being a writer simply wouldn’t leave her alone.
Hilary spent ten years working as a web designer, but in 2012 she finished her first novel, The Lightbringers, and it became one of the first books acquired by indie publisher Grey Gecko Press. It was an exciting start to her writing career.
Now with two more books released through Grey Gecko Press, Hilary is a regular panelist at local literary and pop-culture conventions.
She finds inspiration in her father, who is also a writer, as well as a poet, singer, songwriter, and musician.
Hilary says: “What’s important to me in my writing is to talk about things that matter. I don’t think I could bring myself to write something that doesn’t feel significant to me. I’ve always been intrigued by topics such as the meaning of life and death, the gray areas in morality, politics, authenticity versus perfectionism, and, of course, love. But I’m also easily bored, which means I want lots of action, too. I love my books, and I hope that you will, as well!”
