Sophie Hannah is a Sunday Times and New York Times bestselling writer of crime fiction, published in forty-nine languages and fifty-one territories. Her books have sold millions of copies worldwide.

She has also published two short story collections, five collections of poetry, and the self-help books, How to Hold a Grudge: From Resentment to Contentment-The Power of Grudges to Transform Your Life and Happiness: A Mystery: And 66 Attempts to Solve it.

At the Guardian, Hannah tagged a few books to see in 2021, including:
Another superb novel about creating a new life with a new identity is Philippa Gregory’s Zelda’s Cut. I first read it more than a decade ago and it’s still vividly imprinted on my memory, as is its lesson: that we can always choose who we want to be, and never have to let others define us.
