IMGP0302Hello and thanks for visiting!

I hope you enjoy looking around and checking out my books. :P

Whether it’s romantic thrillers in exotic, foreign locales or exciting mysteries in familiar places, I love creating stories that leave you on the edge of your seat, but touch your heart in memorable ways too.

If you enjoy danger, mystery and romance –  check out my sizzling romantic suspense series set in sultry Singapore: The TENDER Series. If you long to escape and dream of romantic beach vacations (and love pets too), then my new sweet romance series, Summer Beach Vets is for you!

If you have kids (or are a dog lover of any age!), check out my award-winning BIG HONEY DOG MYSTERIES – featuring a slobbery Great Dane and her group of canine friends who tackle sinister puzzles and exciting adventures. Think Nancy Drew meets 101 Dalmatians! ;-) These books are action-packed, page-turners with lots of humour and suspense. Parents and teachers love them because they excite reluctant readers and even have kids begging for bed time so they can read one more chapter. ;-)

Oh, don’t forget to pop over to my blog for some East-meets-West moments, “behind-the-scenes” book stuff and lots more! I love to hear from readers so don’t be shy! :P Leave me a comment or email me on: contact@hyhanna.com

Pic of me at the hospital getting a 24hr blood pressure monitor fitted today! Very weird - it puffs up every 1/2hr during the day and every hour while you're asleep. The thing is, it's a bit tight & itchy & annoying - I'm sure it's making my BP go up!! ;-) Fingers-crossed it won't be as bad as the doctor thought... :P ... See MoreSee Less

Sandra BockstalO dear,...I liked your post out of sympathy not that I like people being ill :-). Well, you have another reason to go out for dinner or have a take away: not safe at the cooker at the moment :-D. Hope it will all turn out ok!3 days ago   ·  3

H.Y. HannaThank you, everybody, for your good wishes! :-) 8:20am here now - another 2 hrs to go and then I can go back to the hospital and take it off!! Carol - it was driving me MAD all night - didn't sleep much - every time it puffed up, I would be jolted awake and I kept worrying about getting the plastic cord tangled or rolling over onto the machine... I'm sure my BP was high just from the anxiety of all that - ha! ha! Rebecca (Becky) - it's for 24hrs - because my BP was sky high in the doctor's clinic but I tend to have "white coat syndrome" where I get anxious about my BP when measured by the doctor - worrying that it'll be high - and then it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy.;-) So they thought a 24hr monitor would work better & give more accurate readings. It's been so annoying though - and I still tense up & get anxious every time it gets going - I'm sure my BP will be high anyway! :D3 days ago

Ka VolbrechtOh, I remember having that after I had my c-section with my daughter. It left a pretty bad bruise actually. And I also had these things that squeezed my legs every few seconds (to keep blood from clotting). Very uncomfortable! Hope you're doing well!2 days ago

Denise LewandowskiOh no I hope you are ok Hsin-Yi. I didn't even know that type of machine existed.3 days ago
Stephanie RebelSo I have a tip for you when it's time to get your BP taken. As soon as they get the BP monitor out just Breathe. Concentrate on breathing in and out. Count the breaths if you have to BUT I have always found if I am concentrating on the breathing then I can't think about whats to come. I use this technique for shots as well.3 days ago
Rhonda PowellI have an intense dislike for those automatic ones. They hurt my arm! Good luck!3 days ago

Just sent off the 1st book, Playing for Love, in my new SUMMER BEACH VETS series, to the editor! :-) Finishing up final revisions on Bk 2 now and then that will be going off too... getting excited about release day! :-)
"escape Down Under...
...and find love in Summer Beach, where cold noses touch warm hearts."
Sara needs to escape—and an idyllic seaside town on the other side of the world seems like the perfect place. She’d always wanted to visit Australia, but the first thing she meets on the gorgeous, white sand beach is not a kangaroo but a wounded, lost Beagle!

Veterinarian, Dr Craig Murray, can’t get the beautiful, curvy American out of his mind. They might come from different cultures—and even speak different “English” sometimes—but he knows they could have a future together. Can he convince Sara that this is more than just a vacation fling?

Then Sara discovers that Craig isn’t quite what he seems and the past that she was running away from comes back to haunt her. Now she needs to decide if she can risk it all again for another chance at love…

Pics from my day teaching the "Intro to Children's Writing" workshop at University of Western Australia yesterday! Great group of people and lovely location on a beautiful campus + a cheeky gang of butcher birds who turned up to share my lunch! ;-) Husband also took a pic of me "teaching" when he came to pick me up at the end... hah! ...

H.Y. HannaDenis - it went GREAT! Really lovely bunch of people, all with different, interesting backgrounds - made for great discussions & story ideas during the writing exercises. They gave me lots of positive feedback at the end - said they really enjoyed it & got a lot out of it - so I was delighted, especially as some of them had traveled a great distance to come to Perth to do the course! :-)6 days ago   ·  2
