Hannah Mary McKinnon
Hannah McKinnon was born in the UK and grew up in Switzerland. Rather unsurprisingly, she loves mountains, chocolate and cheese. A chance encounter back in the dark ages of the Internet in 1999 led to her walking down the aisle with a Canadian five months later. Fast forward a decade, when Hannah quit a successful career in the recruitment industry, and moved to Oakville, Ontario, with her husband and their three boys. Maybe it was the failed attempt at a start-up company, or the fact Hannah suddenly found herself in her forties, but one morning she decided she needed to follow her oldest passion, started writing, and never even wanted to look back. Hannah writes women’s fiction and children’s books. She has a soft spot for short stories, of which all but one have been published (perfect scores were never her forte).
