Rowan Hill is the pen name for a young(ish) woman from Australia. Beginning her career teaching highschool English and Drama in the Australian bush, Rowan eventually travelled the world and found her love of languages. After earning her Masters in Applied Linguistics, she did a lot more traveling and teaching until she finally just decided to throw in the towel and earn a Doctorate. 
Rowan currently lives in Sicily, where she uses the Italian countryside as inspiration (as any writer would!) to furiously write all the words she can while drinking cafe and sipping vino.
