Nomi Hill

Natasha “Nomi” Hill was born and raised in small town North Vernon, Indiana where the population sits at less than 7,000 before she relocated to Indianapolis after many graduations. Nomi bounced around the medical field from dental assisting to emergency room registrar to fertility clinic phlebotomy and hospital laboratory assisting before deciding to take her love and passion for cinema along with literature and mix it with personal knowledge of the struggles of addiction and mental illness and write her own fictional tale. When Nomi isn’t writing or working, she’s indulging in her horror film obsession or listening to audiobooks while painting, sculpting, die cutting or creating artistic tributes to her favorite medias as well as spending time with her Siberian Husky, Winter, and her Shar-pei mix, Daya.
