Darci Hannah | The Impact of Unexpected Gifts
December 30, 2011
We all have them, those unexpected gifts that in one way or another change our
lives for the better. Like the long-eared, yet-to Read More...
Darci Hannah, born and raised in the suburbs of Chicago and a graduate of Indiana University, has skied, paddled, sailed and hiked a good chunk of North America while toting her favorite, dog-eared works of historical fiction along with her. As a self-proclaimed student of life who is â€śfar from passing the test,â€ť Darci continued her self-education after college by indulging her passion for travel, history (Scottish history in particular), as well as her interest in those mysterious happenings, myths and tales that challenge the imagination. Shortly after graduation, Darci married her college sweetheart. It wasnâ€™t until after the birth of the coupleâ€™s third son that she finally decided to combine her adventurous spirit with her life-long passions and put pen to paper. Many years and rejection slips later, The Exile of Sara Stevenson, was finally published in 2010 by Ballantine Books, a division of Random House, followed by, The Angel of Blythe Hall, published in 2011.
It isnâ€™t surprising that Darci Hannahâ€™s works, combining her unique interests and storytelling ability, donâ€™t fit neatly into any one genera. While being firmly rooted in history, they are unwinding journeys of adventure, romance, mystery and suspense that deftly bring the reader to the edge of belief and beyond. Hannahâ€™s stories are filled with palpable emotion, richly drawn characters, evocative settings, visceral historical detail and intriguing, unpredictable plots. They speak to the romanticâ€”to the adventurous soul looking to be whisked from the twenty-first century and transported to Scotland of the past. Whether to a forlorn lighthouse teetering on the edge of Cape Wrath, or to the tumultuous Borders in the reign of James IV, Darci Hannahâ€™s inspired historical tales will continue to linger in the imagination long after the last page is turned.
Darci Hannah currently lives in Michigan with her husband and three teen-aged sons.
