Honey Stavonhagen writes mainly at night from the warmth of her summerhouse in the South Downs.  Born to a Jamaican mother and a mixed English/African-American father, she grew up in a Hampshire village, where she spent her days reading voraciously and building dens in the forest.

Honey has a BA in Chinese and French (with Japanese and Spanish) from the University of Westminster and lived and worked in China for two years where she met her Sino-German husband. A secret scribbler since she was a child, Honey didn’t think she was a real writer until a friend forced her to join the Hampshire Writer’s Society in 2012.  Since then she has been successful in writing competitions for crime fiction, poetry, fantasy fiction and first page of a novel for children.
