Clifton Hill – Clifton Hill is an aspiring fantasy novelist and freelance digital artist. You can find him on his blog and twitter where he enjoys a good chat about books and other media in the sci-fi and fantasy domain. Occasionally you can see some of his art which runs the gamut from 3D work, to illustrations and more. Drawn into genre fiction with the works of Asimov in the early years, he moved on to love videogames and drawing. (Recent favorites include Jordan, Martin, Rowling, Sanderson, etc.) Immersion in the media eventually blossomed into an epic fantasy story idea, only to be shelved while other pursuits were…well…pursued. Rediscovering the love of writing, Clifton has written a short story, started several others, and is near to finishing an epic fantasy novel on a mythical warrior called Hestea Hammerblood. Excerpts of his writing are available on his blog where he likes to talk about the process, books, and whatever else may pop up.
