CHIP HILL is the author of the CLOUDLAND series about a magical world hidden from our eyes in the clouds. He received his Aerospace Engineering degree from Texas A&M University and two master’s degrees, which he used to pursue three careers: Air Force officer, senior manager for technology companies, and leadership positions in Texas A&M Engineering. His recent retirement has enabled him to focus on the Cloudland books and other creative efforts, including a teenage Christian musical. Chip and his wife Carmel live in College Station, Texas. They are the parents of three children and grandparents of five, who are the inspiration for these stories.
