Born in 1951, Yorkshireman Brian R Hill was educated at Aireborough Grammar School in Yeadon near Leeds. He has a grown up family and three grandchildren. Brian lives close to the beautiful Yorkshire Dales National Park. A keen amateur photographer, musician and composer, Brian derives much of his inspiration from the beautiful countryside of the region. A stroll through The Dales can provide Brian with a chapter full of ideas, although the areas he includes are often heavily disguised by the time the final draft is complete - Yorkshire, for example, is not famous for its volcanoes.


Before retiring, Brian worked in Clothing, Retail and Lighting industries. He now divides as much of his time between writing, walking, photography and music as he can. Brian has published three magic/ fantasy novels - 'The Shintae', published in 2007, with a 2nd edition released in 2017, 'Shadows from a Time Long Past' in 2011 and 'The Mastig', in 2017. In 2016, Brian published a post-Brexit contemporary thriller, 'Love, Lies and Treachery', set in his home county of Yorkshire, England.
