Hannah Lynn, author and genre hopperand therefore very much one of my tribe
LWOTW: Hello, Hannah, lovely to meet you. Can us about when you first realised that you are a writer?
Hannah: I have always been someone who writes. At school I was writing silly limericks when I should have been working in lessons, and I spent a long time writing short stories and stories for children before embarking on novels. I don’t think there’s ever been a point when I realised I was a writer as such though. It has simply always been a part of me.
You seem a natural born writer. Do you rely more on dreams, imagination, or planning?
A combination of planning and imagination. I need to know where I’m going to, otherwise I lose my focus and drift, but often my stories and characters takes twists and turns that I really didn’t see coming.
Characters as strong and rounded as yours have minds of their own, I’m sure! What’s the highlight of your writing career so far?
The highlight has definitely been winning the Kindle Storyteller Award. It was total unexpected and was such an amazing event. That would take some topping!
Yes, congratulations on that! Fabulous. What are you most looking forward to at the moment?
Getting all my ideas down on paper. I love writing, so the more I get to do it, the happier I am.
That’s great to hear. If you could say one thing to aspiring writers, what would it be?
Keep reading, and keep going!
And finally: Who would you be if you were a fictional character?
Definitely a strong minded, independent woman. Perhaps Lady Door from Neverwhere.
