Danielle Lincoln Hanna writes Hearth & Homicide Suspense. Family and firestorm exist side-by-side in her novels. As much as you can expect the echoes of gunfire and the flashing reds-and-blues, you can also expect the porch light to be on and a warm cup of cocoa awaiting you at the fireside.
When she's not writing, you can find her hiking, biking, camping, and kayaking with her faithful furkid, Molly.
When did you first start writing?
I was four years old. My older brother had learned how to read and write, and I was so jealous my mother had to start teaching me on the spot. I started writing fiction pretty much right away and decided by the time I was seven that I wanted to be an author.
What do you like to write?
My author tagline is "Hearth & Homicide Fiction." My stories center around crime, mystery, and suspense, but the heart and soul is always the characters' search for home and family. This is reflective of my own experiences, as a fatherless daughter and the child of an emotionally abusive home. I draw deeply from my own experiences to bring authenticity to the stories of my characters.
