About Thurston Hillman

So you want to know about me?

Well, I was born and raised in chilly Winnipeg, Manitoba—that’s in Canada for all you non-Canadian folks out there—in a family that consisted of me, my parents, and an older sister. I grew up in French immersion schools but I don’t profess to be fluent in the language, instead I speak somewhat passable french. Grammar and spelling in french still eludes me… as does english, but that’s what editors are for! [Tip your editors folks]

At the age of eight I started getting into role-playing games when a wacky cousin of mine came over and showed me several D&D books. A few weeks later I was down at the local game store and got roped into a game of Battletech down in the stuffy basement of the store. From that point onward, I was hooked.

For three years I was an editor on the TenTonHammer network, working under the pseudonym Ratboy, where I managed their World of Warcraft sire and brief Warhammer Online site.

Now, I’m trying to make it as a full-time freelancer. While continuing my specialization in writing for the games industry, I’m also available on contract for a variety of other writing. I do consultation work in the IT industry, offering content fulfillment, process documentation, and project management services.

Check out my website, where I talk about all sorts of RPG-related things:
