Author Showcase


In describing herself, Hannah Stahlhut says she enjoys reading, daydreaming, dancing, and spending time with her family. She forgot to mention writing! Now 17, she began writing her first novel at age 14.

Hannah was already working on a 400-page manuscript when she heard about the Tweener Time International Book Competition. High school students are invited to submit the manuscript of a book written for the pre-teen audience (8- to 12-year-olds).

Because she prefers to work on only one project at a time, Hannah dropped her manuscript-in-progress to create Journey to the Homeland, a fantasy for Tweens. Within a year, Journey to the Homeland went from being the seed of an idea to an award-winning debut novel. Her book took first place and is part of the 2007 Tweener Time Championship series of "books by teens for Tweens."

Hannah lives in Danville, Indiana. She is getting ready for her senior year of high school and has already begun the search for college. She plans to major in English.
