Student Hannah Dennison, who has taken numerous Writers’ Program novel classes over the years, has published her second novel.
Scoop! is the second adventure in the Vicky Hill mystery series set in the wilds of rural England. Vicky, an obituary writer for the Gipping Gazette, investigates the untimely death by electrocution (via hedgeclippers) of the town’s champion hedge cutter. Convinced of foul play, Vicky puts her journalistic skills to work. However, what she uncovers threatens to expose her own dark secret.
In December, Berkley will publish Expose!, the third book in the series.
“I’m convinced that if I had not enrolled in the UCLA Extension Writers’ Program, I would still have an unfinished manuscript languishing in my bottom drawer. Apart from learning the craft under professional and gifted instructors, I have made new friends for life. Even as I write my fourth book in the Vicky Hill mystery series, I’m still taking Claire Carmichael‘s classes and will continue to do so as I pursue my next goal—giving up my day job!”
