About the Author

Anita Pauwels walked out of the dust in a semi-arid desert seeking a wider Universe beyond the beyond. She has worked in surgery as a scrub tech/circulator, nurses aide, in a flower shop, chemical plant, bronze foundry, and for 20+ years was a successful bronze artist and writer of prose, showing and selling in venues and galleries across the greater Southwest. In mid-careers, Anita and her husband took a two and a half year sabbatical with the Peace Corps, to work in Burundi, East Africa, where she earned the JFK Volunteer Service Award for Sub-Sahara Africa. She has written a non-fiction book, Turtle Tushies in the Land of Banana Beer--A Peace Corps Memoir, of their adventures teaching fish farming among a heart-warming people. As her second self (Cooper Hill), she has completed seven dystopian future-fiction action-adventure and space opera novels, replete with strong female protagonists, side-kicks, heroines, heroes and an abundant and appropriate number of villains. Ani enjoys writing/reading, disc-golf, friends, long walks with the dog, painting, kayaking and good movies. She currently greets the sun each morning with her patient husband, fun-loving Mom, and their latest rescue dog, a bundle-of-energy-and-joy black cock-a-poo, Cricket. They reside on a beautiful tree-covered hill above a quiet valley.
