Chris Hill, an exciting new British fiction writer, grew up on Walney Island just off the coast of Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria, at the northern tip of Morecambe Bay. This “bladder-wracked” Island, the largest of the Furness Island group, forms the backdrop for his upcoming novel, Song of the Sea God, soon to be published by Skylight Press.
Now living in Gloucestershire, Hill is a twenty-year veteran as a regional newspaper journalist and currently works as a PR officer for a children’s charity, WellChild. Interesting and perhaps propitiously for a budding fiction writer, he served as a crime correspondent and was the news editor of the daily paper in Gloucester during the time of the Fred and Rose West mass murder case. With his background as a reporter, news editor, main editor and communications correspondent, Hill has always had an eye to develop his writing craft for more creative purposes.
