How It Started:Roccie Hill Writing

I have been a writer all of my life. This kind of commitment comes from my bones, and has never been something I could ignore. It is a little like an affliction of joy, as my psychological, emotional, intellectual and physical states melt together when I feel the words coming. For me, writing has always been a mesmerizing endeavor and an attempt to put my fingertips, however briefly, on a state of grace.

How I Worked at It:

I studied journalism in college, and philosophy, both of which taught me how to see and how to think. I spent many years studying formal English and French, learning about the nuts and bolts of language communication as we know it today. My first graduate degree was in English/Creative Writing from San Francisco State University. During this time I began to read things I loved, and to find my own style. I also spent innumerable hours in coffee houses in the halcyon days of writers in the city.

Formats:

I have worked as a magazine journalist, a copywriter, a PR and marketing professional, a short story writer, a poet, and finally, a novelist. The novel is much my preferred format, because it allows me the latitude to breathe life into people in my parallel worlds.

My works:

Three Minutes on Love (Permanent Press, 2008)(novel)

Window of Exposure (2015)(novel)

Our Scars (2016, play produced at Fertile Grounds Theater Festival, Portland, Oregon)

Works in progress:

The Blood of My Mother (2020, novel)

Tell Me About Tampico (novel)
