USA Today bestselling author H.Y. Hanna writes British cozy mysteries filled with humour, quirky characters, intriguing whodunits – and cats with big personalities! Set in Oxford and the beautiful English Cotswolds, her books include the Oxford Tearoom Mysteries and the BEWITCHED BY CHOCOLATE Mysteries – as well as romantic suspense, sweet romance and children’s mystery novels.
After graduating from Oxford University with a BA and MA in Biological Sciences and a Master of Studies in Social Anthropology, Hsin-Yi tried her hand at a variety of jobs: advertising exec, model, English teacher, dog trainer, marketing manager, educational book rep… before returning to her first love: writing. She worked as a freelance writer for several years and has won awards for her novels, poetry, short stories and journalism.
A globe-trotter all her life, Hsin-Yi grew up in many different countries and has lived in a variety of cultures, from Dubai to Sydney, London to New Jersey, but is now happily settled in Perth, Western Australia, with her husband and a rescue kitty named Muesli – who stars in her Oxford Tearoom Mystery series.
You can also learn more about her on the “Meet the Author (for Kids)“ page of the Big Honey Dog Mysteries website. This is her middle grade mystery series inspired by her Great Dane, Honey – who has now sadly gone to the Rainbow Bridge but lives on in the books and children’s imaginations around the world.
