Born in New Zealand, Hannah Tunnicliffe is a self-confessed nomad. She has previously lived in Canada, Australia, England, Macau and, while travelling Europe, a campervan named Fred. She currently lives in New Zealand with her husband and two daughters, having happily ditched a career in Human Resources to become an author. When she is not writing or reading she can usually be found baking or eating and sometimes all four at the same time (which is probably somewhat hazardous). She is founder and co-author of the blog Fork and Fiction, which, unsurprisingly, explores her twin loves - books and food. Season of Salt and Honey is her second novel.

This was such a challenging exercise! Perhaps I am an especially indecisive person because I think choosing five of anything is difficult – five best meals, five pieces of clothing, five songs – but … only five books?! Almost impossible. So, I have decided to select the five books that continued to haunt me long after they were read, the books that changed my life in some tangible way, the books I always have to buy new copies of because I lend them out and they don’t come back. I’ve listed them in chronological order, my personal chronology that is, from childhood to adulthood.
