Hannah Hooton is a multiple award-winning author and screenwriter based in the UK.
After splitting with her agent, Hannah burst onto the contemporary romance scene with the release of her debut novel, At Long Odds, in January 2012. This was followed by the multiple award-winning, bestselling Aspen Valley series, so far consisting of the first four instalments, Keeping The Peace, Giving Chase, Share and Share Alike and Making The Running.
The inspiration for these novels came while combining her wanderlust with her love of horse racing. Hannah spent time travelling around Australia, working from one racing stable to the next as a strapper (not to be confused with a stripper!). She is now settled in East Anglia in the UK, having recently completed a BA honours degree in Writing and Film Studies.
Hannah won the Cambridge Writers short story competition in 2015 with Carvings for Sale, a snapshot of the evolving and turbulent African country where she grew up.
Hannah’s passion and mild obsession with horses has forced her to plan her own life around the racing calendar. Her family are well aware not to expect an appearance from her at functions during the likes of Royal Ascot and Cheltenham Festival weeks. Writing racing romances allows her to further research her passion and she is privileged to have made some firm friends in so doing.
Hannah is currently working on a Young Adult paranormal mystery set in Cambridge, the third in the Messenger series.
