Hannah Alexander is the pseudonym used by the husband & wife pair of writers from The United States, named Cheryl and Mel Hodde. They are famous for writing romance, literature & fiction, and suspense novels. The pair started collaborating as a team right from their 1st blind date. Among the two, Mel Hodde serves as the medical expert, who helps Cheryl in developing medical plotlines as well as edits her writings. Cheryl, on the other hand, plays the role of the wordsmith. The team is particularly well known for writing the Hideaway series of novels. Most of the books written by this pair feature compelling dramas set in the background of the medical practice. This is generally made possible because of Mel Hodde, who is a doctor by profession and an experiences one in his field. Cheryl takes the help of her smart husband in creating the suspenseful plotlines and setups. The husband-wife pair resides in the Missouri Ozarks. This is also the place where they set most of their stories. The lovely pair has given an account of their first meeting, which turned out to be a rather funny and exceptional blind date. When Mel Hodde introduced himself as a doctor, Cheryl asked in a funny tone whether he could help her to paralyze someone? The conversation went on and Cheryl Hodde introduced herself to Mel as a novel writer. She informed Mel that she is working on the development of her 13th book’s plot and wants a character to be in some part of the book’s story. So, she asked Mel whether he has any idea as to how she could do this without damaging the character permanently? With the introduction of medical aspect, Mel started taking an interest and provided her with the information she required. In fact, he gave her much more than she expected with detailed explanation. The remainder of the evening went quite well for both. Each of them was fascinated about the work of the other. Their fondness for one another kept growing with every meeting they had and eventually, they entered into marriage after around 2 years of their first interaction. Their fascination continued to grow even after their marriage as Mel shared information about his field and Cheryl’s imagination turned into exciting stories. Over the years, the writer pair has generated many ideas for compelling stories.

The encouragement, assistance, and medical input from Mel, and the excellent writing skills of Cheryl, the pair was able to develop their debut book together. It is called Sacred Trust and was published by the Bethany House in 1999. Later, they completed two more books to finish their first novel series together. The pair says that they have chosen the pen name just to show that they work together as a dedicated team. Also, they think that they have incorporated themselves into a single unit by the usage of the name. After meeting Mel, Cheryl began to develop her male characters based on Mel’s ethical, strong, and gentle character. To her surprise, the characterizations were liked by the readers very much and helped the novels to sell on a large scale. The team of husband and wife had dreamed of choosing their particular professions when they were very small. It was at the age of 10 that Mel wished to become a doctor. Even though he could not make much progress in his career, he feels satisfied that he met Cheryl and found a deserving life partner. Cheryl too, used to compose stories and songs when she was a child. It was in 1985 that she penned her first romance book. After her marriage, she joined her husband in rewriting all her previous stories so that they can get better. And they actually did become successful in getting noticed by several publishers.

The Hideaway series written by Hannah Alexander is comprised of 10 books in total, which were released between the years 1990 and 2008. The debut novel of this series is entitled ‘Hideaway’. It was released in the year 1990 by the Harlequin publishers. The writers have introduced the main characters as Cheyenne Allison, Dane Gideon, and Austin Barlow. At the start of the story, Cheyenne Allison is depicted as an ER doctor. She has become used to handle emergency cases on a frequent basis. One day, Cheyenne comes across her own sister in the emergency room. She becomes devastated and isolates herself in the Hideaway town in Missouri. But, Cheyenne does not get the solitude and peace that she looks for in the Ozarks town. She learns that the town is terrorized by a dangerous killer. So, she decides to find the culprit with the use of her medical expertise. Cheyenne is joined by Mayor Austin Barlow in her attempt to catch the culprit. Barlow thinks that it is the charismatic neighbor of Cheyenne Allison, Dane Gideon, who has been named in a few cases of violence previously. But, Cheyenne seems to have a different opinion about Dane. However, she shows reluctance to have faith in him and therefore, maintains a safe distance from him. But, Dane seems to have fallen for her charm and beauty. As the violence in the town continues to be on the rise, Dane learns that the vandal has targeted Cheyenne as his next victim. He rushes to save her before it is too late. Cheyenne hopes that the Hideaway turns out to be the place that she can call home.

The next novel to have been released in this series is called ‘Safe Heaven’. This book was published by the Steeple Hill publication in 2004. The primary characters of this book’s story include Fawn Morrison, Karah Lee Fletcher, and Taylor Jackson. At the beginning of the book, it is described that Fawn Morrison can disguise very well in the charming Hideaway town and take refuge there. But, when her safety gets compromised, she looks to trustworthy strangers to ensure her safety. Karah Fletcher works with dedication and determination, and takes up every single challenge that is offered to her at the new clinic in Hideaway. However, she receives a shock of her life when she comes across a disturbing discovery at the clinic. She reaches out to Morrison, which pretty much puts her own life in jeopardy. When the ranger, Taylor Jackson, sees Karah Fletcher for the first time, he feels strongly attracted towards her. His admiration for her grows when he sees her interacting with the patients, especially Fawn Morrison. Taylor Jackson wonders whether this could end up with something deeper.

    I absolutely love the books I have read by Hannah Alexander. I love her writing style, her wonderful descriptions that create the movie in your head as you read. The Missouri based books are especially liked because I lived there for so long and recognizing places adds to the enjoyment. The fact that I don’t have to worry about these books being suggestive or off color in language really makes me appreciate them. You can have mystery, intrigue, action and romance and still keep it clean. Great job!!! Can’t wait to read them all
