Harmony native writes about love in anthology


Fri, Jan 25th, 2013
Posted in Harmony Features

Amy Hahn of Rochester started writing stories when she was a child growing up in Harmony. Throughout school she always had several notebooks with her and was always reading or writing something. She knew that was what she wanted to do with her life.

So far, Hahn has had five books published, and is working on a few more. She lives in Rochester with her husband Chris, and works at Mayo Clinic as a writer/editor in Patient Education. She and her husband both grew up in Harmony and graduated from Harmony High School.

Hahn’s first published book was Mr. Jack Frost, which came out in late 2008. Since then she has released Courting his Royal Highness, Dr. Anderson’s Nanny, and Knight of the Amulet. She has also had The Ice Carousel published as an e-book only.

These books were all published with the Wild Rose Press except for Knight of the Amulet, which was published by Willow Moon. They are all available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble websites as well.

Hahn belongs to the Romance Writers of America, which is a national organization. She receives a monthly magazine from them that lets her know what is going on in the publishing world and updates on what publishers are looking for.

Entering contests and submitting manuscripts for publication have helped Hahn to become a better writer.

“My first rejection letter was two pages long,” shared Hahn. “They gave me ideas to improve. It was a good rejection letter; I saved that one.”

Hahn took their suggestions and polished up her work and eventually it was accepted.

There are many more opportunities for writers today than ever before, and Hahn encourages writers to get out there and seek out their niche. With the many different genres, there is a place for almost anything. And being rejected by one publisher or editor does not mean it’s time to give up.

The next project that Hahn will be a part of is an anthology of short romance stories titled Love in the Land of Lakes, which will be coming out around Valentine’s Day. Hahn explained that she received an email asking her to be a part of this anthology. The story had to be a maximum of 5,000 words, and had to have a lake in it.

“I’m really excited about this anthology,” Hahn said. She added that she had been apprehensive about coming up with a short story out of nowhere, but it wasn’t as hard as she thou .....
