Hello 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 Singapore: The TENDER Series. If you long to escape and dream of romantic beach vacations, then my sweet romance series set in Australia, Summer Beach Vets is for you!

Oh – and if you like a dash of the historic, I also write romantic Regency mysteries inspired by Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, under the pen name, “Penelope Swan“.

If you have kids (or are a dog lover of any age!), check out my award-winning middle-grade series, the 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 (AT) hyhanna (DOT) com

It's been a lovely but hectic few weeks, first my mother-in-law coming from UK to stay with us and then me heading to Dubai to see family. Haven't been back in 5yrs and so much has changed there. Got back to Perth yesterday and just trying to catch up now on all the emails & work admin I've let slide in the past few weeks - ugh, really hard to hop back on the treadmill when you've jumped off!! :P Starting to write a new book next week ('Summer Beach Brides' - my offshoot series from 'Summer Beach Vets') - and will be sharing holiday pics on my blog soon... here's a sneak preview! Hope you've all been well!! :-) ... See MoreSee Less

H.Y. HannaThanks, Kathy & Katja! :-) Katja - you know, my TENDER series was originally set in Dubai but I changed it to Singapore, as the UAE can be a bit sensitive about public image & free speech, etc...I'd heard some horror stories of authors getting in trouble for things they'd written (even in fiction!) so I thought I'd better play it safe! ;-)3 days ago   ·  1

I've been blessed with many 5* reviews from readers & I cherish them ALL but just saw this which really put a smile on my face: "I let my housework go while I read the books." (Ruby Watson for my TENDER series) - that's about the nicest thing you could say to an author!!! ;-) ... See MoreSee Less

My lovely husband, who trumps all romantic heroes... ;-) ... See MoreSee Less

H.Y.

HannaYes, Jean, I'm planning to start writing Book 1 in the new series, "Summer Beach Brides" soon (am just heading back to Dubai to see my own family first!) - so hopefully, will be releasing it in Jun... ready for the (Northern Hemisphere) summer. ;-) Thanks for your interest - it's lovely to know that readers are waiting eagerly for the next book!3 weeks ago
