Kristin Hannah was born in September 1960 in Southern California; her family moved to western Washington when she was eight years old. After working in a trendy advertising agency, she decided to pursue a law career. She began writing in earnest when she became pregnant and was put on bed rest for five months. By the time her son was born, she'd finished a first draft and found an obsession. Since then, she has published twenty novels and become a fixture on the bestseller lists.
