A LITERARY debut by a teenage author from Hebburn has real bite!

Hannah Jennings, 19, has just published Secret Society, the first part of a planned trilogy about a young female werewolf called Blaise Pryde.

The 314-page book took about a year to write and then another six months before the new novelist found a publisher.

Secret Society is now available through Amazon, and the young writer is already busy on novel two of the trilogy.

Hannah, of Thirlmere Court, Hebburn, said: “I’ve always been into reading and some of my favourite writers include J.K. Rowling and Terry Pratchett.

“Secret Society is all about a lady werewolf, living in a small English town called Churchill.

“She falls in love, but also has to fight against an evil enemy.”

A former pupil at Hebburn Comprehensive School, Miss Jennings works on her fiction for an hour or two a day, initially putting her ideas down on paper, before transferring them to a computer.

“I’ve had great support from my parents and family, and I’m already busy with book two.

“I just hope the novel sells well, and there are plans for it be available in Waterstones soon,” she added.

The publisher’s blurb states: “Secret Society is a spellbinding and magical tale of Blaise Pryde – a young wolf, shape-shifter and warrior.

“Blaise is also an Alpha, and the leader of a small band of fellow shape-shifters, a secret society who co-exist alongside unsuspecting humans.”

Secret Society is published in paperback by Vanguard Press, at £9.99.
