Clifton Hill discovered robots in the Fourth Grade when his grandmother handed him a book by Isaac Asimov. Science fiction absorbed him for the next couple years until a little piece called the Belgariad came along, bringing magic and an incredible new world.

Bouncing throughout speculative fiction, Clifton became absorbed by video games, comics and has a degree in Computer Animation. He has dabbled in various art forms, sought to design video games, co-created a web comic, chased after tornadoes, and fights moss whenever he can. After years of neglect, he picked up a story idea buried in a layer of dust, blew it off and has never looked back.

Children Reaching for the Heavens

Throughout history mankind has been plagued with discovery that we know less than we thought; from discovery of new lands across an "endless" ocean, to discovering a world of subatomics, finding dangerous carcinogens in our homes with asbestos and lead, "discovering" fat was bad, then finding the substitute of sugar was worse, to finding harmful BPA and Pthalates in the plastic that surrounds us a Read more of this blog post »

“When everyone thinks something is true, it does not make it anything more than effective marketing.”
Clifton Hill

“The unnamed man’s nose flared in insult as he thought to himself while the pig named Corbin prattled on. He disgusts me with his gluttonous sweat and fearful stink. He is like a swine, plumped up for the slaughter, but none I would like to eat. He sits across the table from me wheedling, desiring, wanting more and more and more. He wants assurances of safety, he wants money, he want, he wants, he wants... I am close, but not quite ready, to lean across and slit his jowls with a second smile, stand up and leave. But that is not my job...not yet.”
Clifton Hill, Veil of a Warrior

“Walking alongside his apprentice’s horse, Sethil Longmere, magus of the Third Circle, Magi Master of Dormir’s army, and a man who had seen more years than most men could count, did his best to keep his apprentice Rousche from falling off his gelding. The dun horse had a sure foot and a good temper, but it seemed unlikely the animal was used to a grown man lying face first in its mane, legs sprawled behind, dangling with each step.”
Clifton Hill, Veil of a Warrior

“Almost dead yesterday, maybe dead tomorrow, but alive, gloriously alive, today.”

Clifton Hill, Veil of a Warrior

“But then he saw it, then he saw what he had known he was seeing and could not accept. There in the night, amid the mist, upon the flat of the plains, the shimmer of light from Allear was not right. The grasses were too flat, the mists curled awkwardly, as if impeded by some large mass and then the glamor was gone, the trick revealed.
And before Thorin’s very eyes, a mass of soldiers appeared — thousands of them — wearing black and facing his camp. Doom settled around Thorin like some shroud for a watery grave.
“Ah, bloody hell.”
Clifton Hill, Veil of a Warrior

Hi Megan, most welcome and thanks. Kip is my newest piece, and the witty scamp believes you would be amused and greatly entertained. But he is a tad full of himself.
