Hannah was born in Yorkshire but grew up in Nepal and India before returning to England to make the Cotswolds her home where she lives with her husband, children and dogs. She juggles writing with her part-time job as a Fundraising Consultant. She has been writing fiction for three years and short stories are her guilty pleasure in the spaces between editing her first novel. She is currently shortlisted for the Cambridge Short Story Prize and a very short story of hers was recently highly commended in the Flash 500 Flash Fiction competition. This year she has fiction being published by several online journals including Ellipsis Zine, Riggwelter Journal and the Cabinet of Heed. Last year she was runner up in the InkTears Short Story Contest and placed in numerous competitions, and the year before that she won the Fresher Writing Prize.

Hannah is represented by Laura Macdougall of United Agents and hopes to introduce her novel to the world very soon. Hannah’s favourite saying is Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity (Seneca).
