I am the author of nine novels, including the Amazon bestsellers CHOCOLATE FOR BREAKFAST and BITS OF BROKEN GLASS.

My writing has appeared in Magnificat magazine and my very short poem was read by journalist Connie Schultz during National Public Radio's "Tell Me More" poetry challenge.

I live in Rhode Island, never far from the ocean.

My novel VILLA DEL SOL won the 2018 Book Prize in Literary Fiction from the Independent Publishers of New England.

Spotlight on my Happy Ever After series!

I managed to sneak in a blog post before the end of a January. Sorry for not being more consistent, but January finds me deep into drafting my new novel. And I write it out in longhand (with my favorite pen) in a spiral-bound notebook my dear friend Lynne gave to me. I’ve written twenty-four chapters so far – yay, me!

Meanwhile, the three books I wrote as my “Happy Ever After” t...

A Place of Springs by Hannah Colby
"This is a the perfect book for your summer reading - you will not want to put it down and at 500+ pages long, you need time which I promise you, will not be an effort. The characters and story-line suck you in from the first seductive chapter and..." Read more of this review »

“Wishes father thought, but they don't breed evidence.”
John Galsworthy

“Lovers of print are simply confusing the plate for the food.”
Douglas Adams

“Writers are the exorcists of their own demons.”
Mario Vargas-Llosa

“Perfectionism is the voice of the oppressor, the enemy of the people. It will keep you cramped and insane your whole life, and it is the main obstacle between you and a shitty first draft. I think perfectionism is based on the obsessive belief that if you run carefully enough, hitting each stepping-stone just right, you won't have to die. The truth is that you will die anyway and that a lot of people who aren't even looking at their feet are going to do a whole lot better than you, and have a lot more fun while they're doing it.”
Anne Lamott, Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life
