I’m Hannah. I’m a writer, reader, and editor who loves all of the above plus dogs (see above: Cricket, the most adorable Welsh Terrier in the world), Earl Grey tea, dark chocolate, museums, summer, and ghost stories. Seriously, I visit A LOT of museums and I’m that person who has to read everything and touch everything before I leave an exhibit. Except for the security guards. They don’t really look kindly on that.
According to Pottermore, I’m a Slytherin, and I’m learning to deal with that. I’m starting to realize that not all Slytherins are evil and some are actually kind of awesome. Besides, green’s my favorite color.
I love YA fiction and historical fiction the best. I currently have a few works in progress, all YA. I’m also trying to find a few great and seriously-committed-to-improving-craft critique partners so we can swap chapters and book recommendations and basically fawn over all over our favorite characters.
My first book, a non-fiction pictorial history about a state mental hospital on the outskirts of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania is publishing in May 2013 thanks to Arcadia Publishing.
