LAUREL ANNE HILL grew up in San Francisco, with more dreams of adventure than good sense or money. Her close brushes with death, love of family, respect for honor and belief in a higher power continue to influence her writing and life.
KOMENAR Publishing released “Heroes Arise,” Laurel’s debut parable, in October 2007. "ForeWord Magazine" selected "Heroes Arise" for a Book of the Year Award for 2007 (bronze, science fiction).
Laurel's shorter fiction and creative nonfiction have been published in the "Rum and Runestones" anthology, the Contra Costa Times, Nth Zine, Lynx Eye, the San Jose Mercury News, Space and Time, and a variety of small-circulation magazines. KQED-FM broadcast her perspective in 2004 about the plight of homeless families. In 2005, Laurel was awarded first prize in the Ninth Annual Captivating Beginnings Short Story Contest. She received an honorable mention in the 2004 Soul-Making Literary Competition, an extended community arts outreach program of the National League of American Pen Women, Nob Hill, San Francisco Bay Area Branch. “Crescendo,” her personal essay, won honorable mention in the Foster City 2003 International Writer’s Contest. Laurel is a member of CWC SF/Peninsula Branch and served on their executive board for five years. She also is a member of Women Writing the West. Her current writing project is a novel set in early California. She lives in California with David, her husband, and Bear, their rather large “shelter-mix” dog.
