Add to shortlist



Hannah was born in Yorkshire but spent her teenage years growing up in Nepal and India. A BA Hons degree in English and Publishing from Oxford Brookes University led logically to a career in charity fundraising! Hannah has organised events in 10 Downing Street and the Foreign Office and has drafted speeches for Cherie Booth, Robin Cook and Jon Snow.

Hannah was recently shortlisted for the Cambridge Short Story Prize and won the InkTears Short Story Contest this year with her story Cyfannedd Fach. Her debut novel MARGINS OF TRUTH is based on the winning story. As she was also runner-up with InkTears last year, she has been asked to be a judge for the 2018 competition. Publications are numerous and include Magic Oxygen, The Brighton Prize and Fresher Writing, whose short story competition she won in 2016.
