Hi and welcome! I’m Hannah. Pleased to meet you!
I am an aspiring author, blogger, teacher of little humans, Kiwi [For those of you not in the know that is a person originating or living in New Zealand. We see the sun first and talk a little funny], and I’m a little crazy. All writers are, I think. We hear voices instead of ignoring them, we write books about what they do and say. We tell stories about how they vanquish their demons, go on adventures and overcome any obstacles… including fear.
Also, I am kinda inherently lazy. Meaning, when I try and stick to a schedule I end up procrastinating until it’s six days later and I’ve binge watched all of Doctor Who, cleaned my entire house twice, written thousands of words in a new project, but still haven’t touched the chapter I was meant to be editing… This website was a long time coming, so forgive me for sporadic updates. I hope to update once a week on a Tuesday.
Part of writing is reading… and I have been reading since I was five years old, and my granddad took me to get my first library card. From that point, I devoured books as fast as I could find them. I moved from section to section, genre to genre, reading anything that interested me, and some that didn’t. When I started earning my own money, the few books that I had already accumulated multiplied before my eyes. (My family says too many books, I say not enough shelves).
I have been telling stories my entire life. They started off like: this is my cat. he is black. He sleeps all day. < eloquent I know. I was very much to the point back then. If you want to know how my stories have developed head on over to my blog where I have excerpts of my writing for you to enjoy.
As for the voices that capture my attention so often, there are many. My main character for Hybrid is Gryphon, a bad ass hunter with far too much emotional damage from her childhood. She has a cousin named Brielle, few friends, unusual family, and has dug many graves for those she loves.
I have a few other WIPs whose main characters are: Alessandria (werewolf), Ibbiana (descended from a scientific experiment), Alex & Ben (dreamweavers), Katherine & Elliot (parkour peeps [literally tried to come up with another way to describe these two… yeah nah]), and Calista (minor god). As you can see, there are a lot of supernatural themes running through my stories. I adore working through the fantastical and unbelievable. (Two stories have no magic though – Ibbiana’s and Katherine & Elliot’s)
I am currently devoting my attention to Gryphon and her story, and I will be releasing Hybrid soon! So, keep your eyes peeled for the announcement, or follow me on my social media to know first!
