Hannah Foley grew up in Devon, surrounded by green fields and spare tractor parts. She worked as an illustrator and designer in Scotland, before returning to Devon where she now lives with her three children. A specialist nurse for people with multiple sclerosis, she spends her spare time writing, drawing and digging on her allotment. In 2018, she won the Kelpies Prize for her first novel, and she has illustrated two picture books by Vivian French. The Tiger Who Sleeps Under My Chair is Hannah’s first book with Zephyr.
