About the author

Susanna Shore and Hannah Kane are pen names of a Finnish author Anu Keinänen. Anu was born in 1974 in Rauma, a small historical town on the southwestern coast of Finland. She grew up with books and music, but it was her love for history that took her to Turku to study a master’s degree in history at the University of Turku. She graduated in 1999 and began to work on her PhD dissertation. Unfortunately, it is likely that it will never be finished due to both lack of funding and time.

Anu has always loved stories. She wrote her first story when she could barely hold a pen – an exotic account inspired by pictures she cut out of holiday brochures – and writing remained her favourite topic throughout the school. While she was working on her dissertation she began to write fiction in earnest, choosing to write in English instead of her native Finnish, to learn to express herself well with it. The books she wrote were meant for her own enjoyment, but in 2012 she discovered Amazon’s Kindle Direct Publishing and the opportunities self-publishing offered. Selecting a pen name Susanna Shore, a combination of one of her given names and a translation of her grandmother’s maiden name, she published her first book, The Wolf’s Call, in June 2012.

Since publishing her first book, Anu has been busy writing full time. She has published one to three books a year, thirteen books to date. As Susanna Shore, she writes the Two-Natured London paranormal romance series, and Tracy Hayes, P.I. series of funny contemporary detective stories. As Hannah Kane, a pen name that combines a version of her first name and the first syllable of her family name, she writes standalone contemporary romances.

Anu met her husband at the university. After years of living together, they married in 2003. He remains her stalwart supporter, even if romantic books aren’t exactly to his taste.
