Biographical and Professional Information

Hope C. Hill, Daughter of Teresa J. Houston and Alan D. Thomas Sr. (Deceased), was born on April 22, 1975 in Champaign, Illinois. She was baptized at St. Agnes Catholic School and Parish in Springfield, Illinois. Her parents later moved to Longview, Texas for a short interim before returning to Springfield, Illinois to reside with family. She has lived in Springfield since then.

Mrs. Hill attended Lanphier High School from 1989 to 1993. Her curricular activities while in school were, Lanphier Lion’s Pride, Show Choir, and Pom Squad. While she did not graduate from Lanphier High School, she attained her General Equivalent Degree in 1994.

Mrs. Hill later married her current husband, Erik C. Hill, of Springfield, Illinois in 1994. They have three children together, two sons and one daughter.

As well as being an author, Mrs. Hill enjoys painting in oils, painting digitally, and silk floristry. She has given a lecture to the Creative Writing Club of Lanphier High School, in which her daughter was a member.

“Despite difficult and sometimes poor upbringings, we were not rich by any means, I have managed to self educate myself after failing to graduate. I believe that anyone can be who they want to be in life, as long as they are willing to work for it. I’m not the best, by any means, in fact there is so much more that I can learn, but I have achieved a mentality about life that has gone beyond my upbringing. I only hope that I can pass what wisdoms I have achieved to the next generation, so that they have an even better chance at life than I did.”
