Hannah Tunnicliffe was born in New Zeland but is a self-confessed nomad. After finishing a degree in social sciences, she lived in Australia, England, Macau, Canada and, memorably, a campervan named Fred. A career in human resources temporarily put her dream of becoming a writer on the backburner. She currently lives in Sydney, Australia with her husband, Matthew, and their two daughters. The Color of Tea is her first novel.
