Hannah spent most of her childhood reading books, climbing trees and exploring the mountains of Idaho. She often fell asleep to her father telling her stories he’d adapted from his favorite novels; books like The Hobbit, The Three Musketeers and The Princess Bride.
In high school she interned at Zoo Boise where she fell in love with the animals and their stories, and thus decided to enroll at the University of Idaho as a Wildlife Biology major. Three years into the degree, with only 4 credits left, she realized she’d financed her entire college education with money she’d made from writing competitions. Instead of returning to the UI, that summer she married her high school sweetheart and the pair spent 5 weeks backpacking through Europe before they moved to Madison, Wisconsin. Her husband began graduate school, and Hannah began to write a novel about a young woman also separated from her family. In 2015, Hannah was accepted at the University of Wisconsin as an English major and she began to upload her novel to Wattpad. She named it The Last She.
Within five months of joining Wattpad, The Last She was ranked third on Wattpad’s Science Fiction Hot List with 45 K reads. In nine months it had 400K reads and came to dominate the Science Fiction Genre, most often ranked number one on the Science Fiction Hot List. In 2016 it was one of the Top Ten Most Read Books on Wattpad, read for a combined 6,205,371 minutes, and won in both The Watty’s and The Fiction Awards. In 2017, it was the most read science-fiction novel on Wattpad.
In addition to writing The Last She, in 2017 Hannah was contracted by General Electric to write the Sci-Fi short story, The Silver Falcon, available to read on GE’s Wattpad Profile. In the summer of 2018 Hannah will have officially become a published author when The Writers Guide to Wattpad is published by Writers Digest.
In November of 2017, Hannah finished the sequel to The Last She, The Last City, exactly one week before she and her husband welcomed their first child, a baby girl, into the world. Becoming a mother has only added to her passion (and not to mention material) for writing, and she looks forward to continuing Ara’s adventures in book three of The Last She, The Last Creation, as well as beginning a brand new young adult series.
