Former Master Class in Novel Writing student Hannah Dennison has some exciting publishing news—her first novel in the series A Vicky Hill Exclusive! will be released this spring by Berkley Books, an imprint of Penguin Putnam. Set in the sleepy English town of Gipping-on-Plym, the series features sweetly bumbling investigative journalist Vicky Hill, who will do anything to get that front-page story. But the unusual death of a local hedge-jumping enthusiast just may lead to Vicky’s own deadly downfall. Hannah has an upcoming reading at one of our favorite bookstores—Dutton’s Brentwood Books—on March, 8, 2008 at 3pm. She says, “Whenever I hear writers complain about being unable to find agents or whatever, I always ask them if they’ve taken any classes. I’ve learned so much through the Writers’ Program. I couldn’t have got published without it!”
