I am an active, female adult in the golden years of my life. I grew up in a small town in Southern Minnesota, had a somewhat traditional family; stay at home mom, they called them housewives in those days, and a father who worked very hard to bring us a good middle class lifestyle. Nothing fancy mind you but we were comfortable. I graduated from high school and went on to attend St.Olaf College for two years, then to Winona State College, which is probably a university by now. Due to unforeseen circumstances, mainly running out of money, I stopped going to school the spring of my twenty-first birthday and got a job as a flight attendant with Northwest Airlines. I flew for a year or two and then, having met my fiance while in stewardess training, married. We had our first child less than a year later, a beautiful son and we named him Alan. He is the delight of my life.
Mid-life after two divorces, I was fortunate enough to be able to learn how to become a computer programmer and for the last fifteen years this has been my profession. During this time I also started writing and have published two novels; The President’s Wife and Madam POTUS under a pen name, Hannah Stevens. You can go to my web site www.hannahstevensauthor.com
My life has been full of adventure and excitement. I am a runner (jogger these days) and have run numerous 10 K’s and five full marathons. I have backpacked and climbed many mountains in the Colorado Rockies and rafted the Grand Canyon. I am a skier, both downhill and cross country and love snow shoeing as well. I read about a novel a week. And I have two wonderful dogs; Sophia a two-year-old weimaranar and Lily a year-and-one-half old Brittany spaniel.
