USA Today bestselling author H.Y. Hanna writes fun cosy mysteries filled with humour, quirky characters, clever twists—and cats with big personalities! She is known for bringing wonderful settings to life, whether it’s the historic city of Oxford, the beautiful English Cotswolds or the sunny beaches of coastal Florida.
After graduating from Oxford University with a BA in Biological Sciences and a MSt in Social Anthropology, Hsin-Yi tried her hand at a variety of jobs including advertising, modelling, teaching English and dog training… before returning to her first love: writing. She worked as a freelance writer for several years and has won awards for her poetry, short stories and journalism.
Hsin-Yi was born in Taiwan and has been a globe-trotter all her life—living in a variety of cultures, from Dubai to Auckland, London to New Jersey—but is now happily settled in Perth, Western Australia, with her husband and a rescue kitty named Muesli. She loves gardening, has a morbid fear of cockroaches and adds chili to everything she eats!
