For Hannon, writing came naturally. Even though she was writing for as long as she could remember, she took a few detours on her journey to publishing success.

That includes getting her degree in psychology. For a time, Hannon was convinced that she would become a psychologist. The degree did not go to waste. She uses the lessons she learned in university to create and explore interesting relationships between her characters.

Hannon’s creative endeavors are not limited to storytelling. She started taking voice lessons in college. The author had always wanted to sing but she did not trust her voice. Taking singing lessons and then auditioning for musicals took a lot of courage on Hannon’s part.

But the effort paid off. Some of the author’s fans might have seen her in the many musicals in which she has participated. That includes playing leading roles in the likes of ‘The King and I’ and ‘Oklahoma’.

On the career side of things, Hannon was fortunate enough to land a position at a Fortune 500 company. At the time, she had already decided that she wanted to write novels for a living. In fact, she had started penning her stories.

Initially, her publishing dreams did not clash with her day job. She had an entry-level position that allowed her to keep reasonable hours. All that changed once she climbed the ladder, becoming an executive with three departments to supervise.

The author did everything from writing speeches for the CEO to editing the company’s magazine. The work was exhausting. It kept her busy 24/7. She doesn’t deny that it had its benefits. Besides the money, she would often fly first-class to some of the most amazing places in the world.

But a time came when she had to choose between writing and her corporate job. Despite juggling them both for a long time, in the end, she was forced to sacrifice her corporate career. It was a gamble but it paid off. She became a bestselling, award-winning author.

The work she does as a published author is far more rewarding because she doesn’t have to contend with the long commutes and corporate politics. Though, she will be the first to admit that the publishing industry has its challenges.

Before she landed her first contract, Hannon wrote because it was fun. Her only objective was to tell the best possible story. She could not maintain that mindset once she got her first contract. The writing was still fun. But Hannon had deadlines to beat.

Her publishers wanted the author to produce high-quality stories at a much faster pace. Additionally, besides writing, she was expected to promote her work, maintain her website, engage her fans on social media, and so much more. Hannon realized that writing was a job, not a hobby.

Best Irene Hannon Books

The author tries to include her faith in her stories without being too preachy. Hannon’s best novels include:

Against All Odds: Evan Cooper, an FBI agent, was hired to keep Monica Callahan safe. The daughter of a diplomat father that was navigating a sensitive situation in the Middle East, Monica was making life difficult for Cooper because she had refused to take the intimidating threats coming their way seriously.

But she cannot afford to close her eyes to the danger, not anymore, not when her father’s actions have triggered an abduction. Cooper will do everything in his power to protect Monica, the only woman that has ever stolen his heart.

Fatal Judgement: Jake Taylor had no interest in protecting Liz. As far as he was concerned, she had driven her husband (his best friend) to suicide. But Jake was a US marshal and he did not have a choice in the matter. Jake did not expect the assignment to change his opinion of the federal judge. Now that Liz is facing a mysterious enemy, Jake is determined to keep her alive.
