About Hannah

Hannah grew up in Manchester and was involved in the Arts from a young age.  She was regularly cast in school plays, was part of a soul choir and her first television appearance was in the historical series ‘How we used to Live’.  One of her first short stories contrasting the views of different cultures on a young woman ‘coming of age’ was featured as part of an anthology for International Women’s Day. Hannah was a fan of C.S.Lewis and J.R.R Tolkien, noting the references to Christian and Nordic mythology in their work.

 

Hannah plays the Clarinet and Cello and joined a Baroque orchestra whilst studying Psychology at college.  She travelled extensively, performing in the Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, France, and Italy.  Unfortunately due to developing a severe medical condition, she left the stage and took time out from her studies.

 

Her experiences led her to developing an interest in Equality and Human Rights, this would lead to Hannah studying Law and she graduated with First Class Honours in 2007. Hannah studied the Arts alongside Law, developing a keen interest in Philosophy.  Hannah qualified as a Barrister and specialised in Employment Law.

 

Hannah was forced to question life, love and the universe. After asking for specific directions to happiness and true love, Hannah had a vivid dream of Dragons, Magic and Destiny and started writing.  A few months later, her debut novel was released and attracted excellent reviews from readers and book bloggers.
