Hannah Alexander's Bio:
Hannah Alexander is the pseudonym of husband-wife writing team Cheryl and Mel Hodde. When they first met, Cheryl had published several magazine articles, and Mel had just begun his new job as E.R. medical director in Cheryl’s hometown. On their first date—set up by Cheryl’s matchmaking pastor—Cheryl wondered if Mel could help her paralyze someone. He was, naturally, taken aback, until Cheryl explained she needed the medical information for a novel she was writing.

Eighteen months after that memorable date, they were married and soon began to work together on a new novel with a medical setting, which they entitled Sacred Trust. Encouraged by that manuscript’s quick sale to a publisher, the couple wrote five more novels set in the emergency department of a fictitious small-town hospital in the Ozarks. SAFE HAVEN is the second book in the Hideaway series of inspirational suspense novels set in another fictitious Ozarks community. The Hoddes like to describe their books as “ER with a prayer” because they emphasize the importance of prayer in the medical setting.
