Hannah Dennison began her writing career in 1977 as a trainee reporter for a small West Country newspaper in Devon, England. While the English countryside would always be home in her heart, she yearned to see the world on a grander scale. For more than a decade, she traveled the globe working as a flight attendant on private jets, while dreaming of someday landing in Hollywood to pursue a writing career. After an inspiring conversation with Steven Spielberg during a flight to the Middle East, Hannah decided to take his advice and follow her passion. Without a net in sight, she took a leap of faith and moved from England to Los Angeles, with her daughter and their two cats in tow. After arriving in Tinseltown, she worked as a story analyst for several motion picture studios, while producing a hefty stack of her own screenplays. After enrolling in the UCLA Writer’s Program, Hannah decided to focus exclusively on writing long form narrative. After spending four years on the first draft of her debut novel through Writer’s Program courses, Hannah landed an agent from her very first submission, and a three-book publishing contract from Berkley Prime Crime (Penguin USA) followed soon thereafter.
Hannah is married to a fellow writer, and currently divides her time between Los Angeles and England.
