USA Today bestselling author H.Y. Hanna writes fun cozy mysteries filled with humor, 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.
I had a great time chatting with H.Y. Hanna about her writing, the hard work she put into being a successful indie author, and a lot more in this intriguing H.Y. Hanna interview.
