Hannah Renier – Writer, Ghostwriter, Historian and Researcher


Hannah has been a self-employed ghostwriter since since Pagemaker (look it up!) was the best thing yet for desktop publishing. She's been anonymously published by Penguin, Virgin, Historical Publications, the History Press, Tempus and other imprints  as well as all the major self-publishers. Some of her histories and biographies have inspired TV programmes for Discovery and Channel 4.

From her armchair in the middle of London, she's produced action-packed memoirs and how-to books, self-help and funny stories and a dog blog. Ghostwriting has also meant travelling – all over the place, from Djakarta to Rochdale via Texas – for stories about real-life dilemmas and conflicts in business, the law, television, popular science and marriage. (And much more. But never music; she's clueless about music.) Right now she's researching an early twentieth-century true crime book which will be submitted under her own name.
