Holly M. Hill

Holley M. Hill (not her given name) grew up in the wild woods of New England. In 2010 she earned a dual Masters in Education and Library Science and has worked as a teacher, librarian, and artist. She lives in New England with her husband, Michael, and her daughter, Jane. She spends her free time reading, singing, and making art.

There Is Only Lampyriade

In this hybrid collection of genre-bending, heart-wrenching memoir, Hill recounts the eden-like natural world of rural New Hampshire as seen through the eyes of a child, and the deterioration of that magical place as her family life begins to unravel from within.

Hill's work uses poetry and prose to explore sense of place, familial dysfunction, and the slippery nature of consciousness, accompanied by Hill's original collages and actual diary entries from her childhood.
