Roccie Hill’s new book Window of Exposure is full of excitement and intrigue. When terrorists capture an American CEO in France, former F-16 pilot Kate Cardenas leads the Defense Intelligence Agency team in a covert operation to rescue the businessman before it’s too late.
Roccie Hill is the American author of the novel Three Minutes on Love, published in 2008. She received her master’s degree in creative writing from San Francisco State University, where she served as a teaching assistant for Michael Krasny of NPR, and where she regularly had her work appear in the literary quarterly, Transfer. She also received her bachelor’s degree in philosophy from UCLA, and worked with Cesar Chavez in the United Farm Workers union.
In 1980 Hill moved to Paris. There, she worked as a creative writing teacher at the Paris Women’s Institute for Continuing Education and also as the marketing manager for the French Statue of Liberty celebrations. She worked directly for Ambassador Francois de Laboulaye, the former French ambassador to Washington and Moscow.
Currently, she lives in the California desert and is the single mother of one daughter—a pilot and Major in the US Air Force. Hill is an ambassador for the AcademyWomen organization, after formerly serving on their Board of Directors.
