Hannah Sunderland

Hannah Sunderland was born and bred in Sutton Coldfield, north of Birmingham, where she still lives with her menagerie of animals. After completing her education in the area, she moved to Derby to complete a Bachelor of Honours Degree in Fine Art, where she developed a love of sculpture. After graduating she had more part-time jobs than she could count before eventually settling down and opening her own business, making props for crime scene reconstruction.

She inherited the writing gene and unquenchable thirst for reading from her father. She has an obsessional love of stationary and the writing bug set in when someone handed her a notebook and she realised that she could create a world within it. She is an ambassador for the charity Mast Cell Action, raising money through sponsored events and working with the charity to raise awareness of the illness. 

Hannah's debut book Very Nearly Normal is published by Avon, HarperCollins (May 2020).

From a dazzling new talent in women's fiction, comes a swimmingly beautiful love story with a little twist in the tail.

If you couldn't get enough of the smash-hits Me Before You and Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine, then Very Nearly Normal is set to be your new obsession.
