ASHTABULA — Ashtabula harbor native Dennis Hill has published his first book, a childhood memoir called “Mind Passages.”
In a phone interview from his home in Cocoa Beach, Fla., Hill said he started writing the book in August 2014, and finished it a year later.
Described in a release as “a compelling journey in this fast-paced story,” the paperback explores the challenging events of Hill’s childhood dealing with obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) and the struggles that came along with it.
Hill said he also shares some cherished memories.
“The book explores OCD, the onset period, the newness and not quite the knowingness of this entity that moved into my mind and body, shortly before my ninth birthday,” he said.
