The Travel Girl by Hannah Russell

23 years old Yorkshire Dales author Hannah Russell from Leyburn is to release her new book this August, 

‘The Travel girl’ is Hannah’s first book aimed at teenagers and young adults and is from the perspective of a teenage girl called ‘Felicity’ who travels the world having many mishaps and adventures along the way. 

The book is a fictional story for teenagers and young adults. 

Hannah said ‘I first had this idea for the book when I was just 17 myself and started to make notes on it. As I’ve got older it’s had so many re-writes and I finally feel ready to release the story. Lockdown earlier this year gave me chance to look at the story again. I really love the character in the book Felicity, she goes through so many challenges and I think in today’s society that is pretty normal for anyone, there is so many different influences and people to follow on social media there is still the stigma to want to be like them, but most of it is a front, as I’ve got older I’ve released behind closed doors everyone’s life is pretty similar, nobody is perfect and life has its ups and downs and this is what the character in the story really shows on her journey. It’s quite a long book at over 400 pages and took me around a year to write’

The new book is being released on the 21stAugust 2020 and is now available for pre orders online, Hannah has won multiple awards across the globe for her writing skills and the book has already been rated as a must read this summer and has been described as a witty book full of life.

Hannah first became an author when she was just 17 years old when her first book was published about her pony Little Alf.

Hannah said ‘This is just the start of my books for teenagers, I’ve already started to work on some more, it’s nice to be writing for a new genre, it’s 5 years since I started writing so a lot of my followers are now ready for the next books’
