Fellow authors, curious readers, and casual passersby.
The proverbial “they” say that authors should have a platform. That’s a corner of the internet where we showcase our work and draw interested readers into our clutches like the Pied Piper. But I don’t want my writing nook to become a boring conglomeration of pages that only yak on about me and my books. So, hopefully a writing prompt or blog post brought you here. Hopefully, it got your creative wheels turning. If you’ve stumbled upon me some other way, go check one out. I publish new content every week.

So, who the heck am I?
I’m Hannah, and I’ve made my passion for reading and writing books my full-time career. I became a freelance writer and editor straight out of college. In May of 2016, I launched my own manuscript editing and ghostwriting business, PurpleInkPen, at the age of twenty-three. I help my clients create and refine their books until they’re exactly how they envisioned. But I figured it was about time I created a space for my own writing.
I live in Chattanooga, TN, with my musician husband, Stephen, my music-enthusiast baby girl, Lottie, and a rambunctious corgi named Vanellope, who has more sass than I could ever hope to.
My publications include…
- An epic fantasy/paranormal crossover titled Arcamira, initially written at the age of fourteen. It was first published in biweekly installments on the serialized literature website, Channillo. Now, I am working on a second round of refinements before seeking representation.
- A short story titled “Hi, I’m Corpse Bride Barbie,” published in the online journal, Bewildering Stories.
- Two nonfiction titles from Atlantic Publishing: People that Changed the Course of History: The Story of Frank Lloyd Wright 150 Years after His Birth and Things That Changed the Course of History: The Story of the Invention of the Typewriter 150 Years Later.
- An essay titled “Rabies Bites,” forthcoming in the anthology Writing for Animals: New perspectives for writers and instructors to educate and inspire from Ashland Creek Press.
