Welcome! If we haven't met in person, it's nice to internet meet you! If we do know each other, hello again dear friend.

For the past six years I've written the women's lifestyle blog Hannah Hart BeatThe blog, founded originally as a college coursework distraction, became a site for women to meet and learn about design, fashion, pop culture, art, travel, and life in Brooklyn.

This year I finished writing my first full length book based on my time traveling and hiking the Camino de Santiago in Spain.

Other than writing, I'm a yoga fanatic, voracious reader, compulsive coffee drinker, and proud dog mom to a tiny pup, Mateo. For more info, or just to say hola, contact me below.

What's the story with your book?

Great question! The book is currently in the form of a third draft. For more information or questions regarding representation please contact me via the form below!

Are you planning on moving back to New York when the book is done?


Are you interested in contributing to my website?

Currently I am heads down on the book but please feel free to reach out! I love all kinds of things re marketing and always happy to chat.

Are you that Hannah girl from Drunk Kitchen?

Same name, different girl. 💁🏼‍♀️

I liked Hart Beat but you don't post anymore. WTF.

I love you but that's not a question. Sadly, Hart Beat has taken a bit of a backseat since I started writing the G.D. book. I'm hoping to be back to the regular once a day posts soon!

What song are you listening to right now?
