Donna Maree Hanson

Donna Maree Hanson works for the Australian Government in Canberra and lives over the border in the not so sleepy town of Queanbeyan. She’s been writing speculative fiction for over ten years and has twenty short stories published in various small press anthologies and ezines. In 2013, her first longer-length work was published, Rayessa and the Space Pirates, a young-adult space opera romance. In 2014, her first paranormal romance novel is due for release with Escape Publishing.

Donna has been the Chair of two Australian National Science Fiction Conventions, inaugural president of the Canberra Speculative Fiction Guild and a prior treasurer of the ACT Writers Centre. In 2006, she won a Varuna Longlines fellowship for one of her novels in progress. She is currently studying a Masters of Creative Writing at the University of Canberra.

Writing as Dani Kristoff, her first paranormal erotica The Sorcerer’s Spell is out now with Harper Impulse.
