Hannah Faye is a writer and artist. Born on January 20, 1983 in Chicago, Illinois, Faye has been writing since she was a child. In 1990, Faye recalls completing her very first picture book about a lion suspending his appetite to save an antelope from entrapment. In 1992, Faye completed her second story and published it to her fifth grade class. It was entitled Billy the Bully and was about a young boy's decision to become a peacemaker instead of a troublemaker. In 1995, Faye won her first literary award in a school essay contest entitled I Believe in Myself where she remembers reciting the essay over the school's intercom. As a teen, Faye advanced further in writing and began working on more complex stories and completed Unexpected Heir, a story about a young woman's affair with a multi-billionaire.
