Hannah Berry is mostly a graphic novelist, but also a writer, illustrator, podcaster, occasional lecturer and editorial gun-for-hire, regular tutor for the Arvon Foundation and one-time Online Writer in Residence for Booktrust.
Her first graphic novel BRITTEN AND BRÜLIGHTLY, begun while studying an illustration degree at the University of Brighton, was published by Jonathan Cape in 2008. It has subsequently been published in the USA, Italy, Holland, France and Serbia, with the French edition chosen as part of the official selection for the 2010 Angoulême International Comics Festival. Her second graphic novel ADAMTINE was published in 2012, also by Cape, and she is currently working on a third, LIVESTOCK, due in 2017.
She has contributed comics to numerous publications, including LA VILLA SUR LA FALAISE (Casterman 2010), HOAX: PSYCHOSIS BLUES (Ziggy’s Wish 2014), IDP:2043 (Freight, 2014) and ABOVE THE DREAMLESS DEAD (First Second 2014), and articles to several others such as New Statesman, Dazed & Confused and Huffington Post UK. Her artwork has been exhibited in solo and collective exhibitions in the UK and around the world.
Around the comicking, she co-hosts the No YOU Hang Up podcast with Dan Berry: a very relaxed interview programme of sorts with creative guests and silly chitchat.
She is half Ecuadorian, lives in Brighton and is extremely partial to cashews; the Ferrari of the nut world.
