You’ve got to understand how mind blowing it is, the idea that anything you wrote inspired anything much less poetry that reads (in part) “the sunshine in our Lilliput were/the ‘aunties’ who wrapped us/in reassuring words as they listened/to our hearts beating to suspicions/of desertion” (from Dreamers by Althea Romeo Mark) and “our…See More

I am from Antigua in the Caribbean. I love books. I've written a few - The Boy from Willow Bend, Dancing Nude in the Moonlight, Oh Gad!, Musical Youth, With Grace, and Lost! A Caribbean Sea Adventure. I've read a lot more.

“CODE is proud to support talented Caribbean writers and help to strengthen the region’s publishing industry,” said CODE Executive Director Scott Walter. “But we’re even prouder to be able to provide young people across the Caribbean with award-winning  books that can   ignite  a lifelong love of reading and learning, while  opening the doors to a brighter future.” More on the CODE administered Burt Award for which my forthcoming book, Musical Youth, placed second.

"Oh Gad! is a colloquialism for the coal pot which, as I wrote, was a reminder to me of the sort of imperfect beauty and fragility of life, and something so grounded, literally from the ground, that it came to reflect the essence of what Nikki must come to terms with back at me. It works well as exclamation as well – given the emotional chaos of the characters’ and especially Nikki’s life – but it started with the coal pot. More on this interview on my book. "More on this interview on my book

"I’m a writer, I am black, I am female, I am Antiguan, I am Caribbean; I wouldn’t know how to pick these things apart. They and other things unnamed are a part of my identity and they inform and define my writing as well. But they don’t label (or limit) it."  More on this interview about me and my writing." More on this interview about me and my writing

" I am delighted that Ms. Hillhouse has so compellingly demonstrated that living and writing in the Caribbean impose no limitations of sensibility. All writers are ‘local’ and it is out of this very locatedness that they create distinctive fictions. Endorsement by UWI professor Dr. Carolyn Cooper. Read other reviews and endorsements
