Blue Soul Fire Alive is the work of Jamieson Lee Dagdeviren Hill, an English poet who has travelled to over 30 countries and lived in England, North Wales, Italy, India and Turkey. Born in the Malvern Hills and grew up in a country village, Hill was influenced by classic poets such as Shelley, Wordsworth, Blake and T.S.Eliot. Moreover, Hill was also influenced by a variety of modern and classic poetry including the poetry of Ryokan, the Zen hermit, Taoism and the I Ching and the lyrics of Robert Smith from the English band 'The Cure'. Other influences on his imagination and body of writing include his favourite author Raymond E Feist, the writer Neil Gaiman and the film maker David Lynch.  

Hill's writing is strongly influenced by imagery from nature as well as decades of studying and experiencing mysticism from India, Tibet, China, North American Medicine wheel teachings, Nordic paganism and shamanic practices from around the world. Hill has also been a lead singer and lyricist for three rockbands. Furthermore, Hill is an initiated master of ceremonies for sacred fire ceremonies which he studied in the foothills of the Himalayas and the desert state of Rajasthan in the mid 1990s with two principal sages who are no longer alive.

Finally, Hill writes a blog about his esoteric experiences called 'Off the Track', a Word press blog. He was also a student with Kenneth Meadows, a prolific author in Mysticism and Contemporary shamanism and a shamanic practioner. Meadows passed away in 2002. 

In his freetime Hill is a passionate football fan of two clubs in two different countries, Aston Villa FC and the Superlig club, Besiktas.
