About Summer

Summer Hanford grew up on a dairy farm in Upstate New York. She earned her bachelor’s degree in experimental psychology and went on to do graduate and doctoral work in behavioral neurology. Eventually turning away from long hours spent in research, Summer returned to her childhood dream of being an author. Summer writes in three genres; fantasy, Regency romance and Jane Austen Fan Fiction.

Summer’s complete five novel YA fantasy series, Thrice Born, was published by Martin Sisters Publishing and is available wherever books are sold. Starting in 2014, Summer was offered the privilege of partnering with fan fiction author Renata McMann on her well-loved Pride and Prejudice variations. Since then, they’ve had six national and international amazon number one best sellers. More information on these works is available at On top of her fantasy and fan fiction work, Summer also has Regency Romance titles published by Scarsdale Publishing, including several books in their ongoing Marriage Maker series.
