Hannah Spivey was always an imaginative young girl. Like many young, introverted girls, she experienced bullying from her peers. She found comfort in being able to escape through her writing and found it a way of release. Fiction has always been her specialty and she invites readers into her world of fantasy, reality, and rawness.

She works as a ghost writer and freelance writer. Hannah is a strong advocate against domestic violence and plans to continue spreading the word against it through her novels. She is currently working on her second novel called The Bold and the Ugly Truth and her fourth E-book Perspectives. In addition to her first novel, Ebony the Beloved, Ms. Spivey has written and published three short story e-books: My Sherry Amor, Payback is an S.O.B. and Lloyd Tube. Her favorite authors include Tracy Brown, Carl Webster, Mary Monroe, and Kimberla Lawson Roby. She enjoys listening to R&B and watching old television shows.
