A woman from Staining is to have her work published after being snapped up by publisher Harper Impulse.
30 year old Hannah Emery has just released her first novel, "Secrets in the Shadows", online and a paperback version will be available in the Summer.
Hannah, who also works as a Higher Education Learning Mentor at the Fylde College says, " I've written since an early age. Even as a young child, reading inspired me to write my own stories."
Her book is based in Blackpool and looks at the lives of three generations of women spanning from the 1920's.
