PRAISE FOR THE BIG HONEY DOG MYSTERIES:
“I just adored this mystery. Ms. Hanna did a remarkable job describing every dog to perfection and I loved all their individual personalities. Although this is labeled as a children’s book, rest assured even adults will enjoy going on Honey’s spine tingling adventure.” – Night Owl Reviews (Top Pick)
“I’ve read a few books marketed for middle-grades or younger this year and I have to say that this is hands down the best suited for those ages. It has a great plot, some truly well-rounded characters (with more depth than what I find in most adult novels these days), a fantastic storyline and a climax that will keep you on the edge of your seat.”- Cory Balboni for LitChick Hit List
“There is a magic to speaking to children and H.Y. Hanna has completely captured it.”- Patricia Reding for Readers’ Favorite
About the Author
H.Y. Hanna is Taiwanese by birth, British by education, pseudo-American by accent and currently Australian by residence! After graduating from Oxford University, she tried her hand at a variety of jobs, from advertising in London to English Language teaching in Sydney, before returning to her first love: writing. Always fascinated by dogs, she specialised as a pet writer for magazines in the UK, Australia and NZ, and has been heavily involved in training, behaviour, dog sports and photography. When she’s not working on her next novel, she’s usually found watching repeats of her favourite TV show, Fringe or wiping Dane slobber off the walls.
