Hilarie Pozesky is a writer of personal essays. She is also crafting a memoir about The Search and how genealogy and pilgrimages brought her connection. Hilarie returned to writing full time, after a fifteen-year career in marketing. She has an MA in public affairs reporting from Columbia College in Chicago.

Hilarie lives with an urban sensibility, though she comes from a long line of pioneers and farmers. She channels that rural spirit of toughness and nurturing in her writing and her life. Hilarie places the utmost value on books and reading and is the steward of a very active Little Free Library in her neighborhood outside of Chicago. She lives there with her husband, two goofy sons and her goldendoodle/muse, Ruby.
