About Author Sean Patrick Hill

Freelance Writer Sean Patrick Hill moved to Oregon in 1995, where his first visions of the state were the Oregon Dunes, Cougar Hot Springs, and the Oregon Country Fair. Needless to say, it was love at first sight. Since then he has traveled the state from coast to desert, from valley to mountains, writing poetry and travel articles for The Oregonian and The Source Weekly. He has picked mountain huckleberries, canned Hood River pears, backpacked through lightening storms, shot the rapids on the McKenzie and Deschutes, toured the hot springs, watched plays at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival and shows at Crystal Ballroom. He has given up hope on ever wanting to move back east, and lives in Portland with his wife, two blueberry bushes, and some lucky bamboo.
