Amalie Rush Hill has lived in or near Salem for 44 years. Now residing in rural Marion County with her multi-generational family, she finds her poetry, short stories and essays inspired by the surrounding natural beauty. Since finishing her four-book science fiction Ambolaja series, she has returned to working on a scifi novel that had its inception decades ago. She is also illustrating a children’s book that is based on something that happened during a family dinner. This summer, Amalie edited a book containing the work of twenty-six Oregon poets that will be released soon by Bob Hill Publishing, LLC, titled Moments Before Midnight. Amalie regularly reads her poetry at many open mic venues and this year has participated in book fairs and other author events in Eugene, Salem, Portland, Oregon City, West Linn and Lincoln City. This past September and October Hill was a featured speaker on Princess Cruise Line’s Enrichment Program.
