Hilary Thompson was born to parents who made a habit of taking roads less traveled. But she was also a first child, and an independent, willful child, so she has made a habit of taking a few roads on her own.
After trying on hats made for artists, architects, restaurant and retail workers, landscape designers, legal secretaries, and professional students, she retreated back to her first loves of education and writing.
Hilary now teaches high school full time, writes whenever and wherever she can, and reads as much as her eyes can handle. She also tries not to spoil her own independent, willful children or neglect her wonderful soul-mate of a husband too much. She tends to ignore laundry baskets and dirty dishes.

Would a basketball player refuse to watch games? Would a lawyer ignore current court cases? There's something fishy about a writer who doesn't read. Even more helpful is to read widely - not just from one time period or genre or author. Immersing yourself in the twists and turns of others' language acts like a muse when you begin to create your own stories. Plus, you never know when or how inspiration might reach you!(less)

Cover Reveal! *swoon*

I've always liked the villains better - they have such interesting backstories. Maleficent, anyone? 

In case you've forgotten, Aitan is Lexan's older brother. The one who works for Keirna? Yeah, nobody really liked him. But I kept thinking - what would be happening in Asphodel when Astrea and Lexan were away?

Aitan would be exacting revenge, of course. Because he's an Iago ch... Read more of this blog post »

“History is written by people. People aren’t always honest with others, or with themselves.”
Hilary Thompson, Lexan's Pledge

“Trust isn’t always about telling the truth in everything, Trea. Yes, you need honesty to develop trust. But trust also involves knowing someone will be there to hold you when you can’t even get out of bed. Someone who will stay with you, even when you don’t deserve it, because their world doesn’t turn without you in it.”
Hilary Thompson, Justice Buried
tags: trust

“Everyone in the world has lost someone they care for. That doesn’t mean you stop caring.”
Hilary Thompson, Balance Broken
