In her 20s she aspired to be a poet but – when her dream to be the next Charles Bukowski didn’t materialize – she soon realized she was far better suited to help talent then be one. Hillary has two young children named Samuel, 6, and Blyer, 8, – two giants who think they rule her world. They definitely rule her heart.
