About the Author

Hanna C. Howard started writing books in the fourth grade--and they were always about dogs. Her tastes have expanded since then, but her favorite stories still tend to have a dog in them somewhere. When she isn't writing or reading with a pot of tea nearby, she prefers to be in her rambling cottage garden, conjuring beauty and nurturing compost. She lives in Tulsa, Oklahoma, with her husband, three young hobbit children, and their athletic rescue mutt.

Poetic, whimsical, and full of heart. Our Divine Mischief's both tender and fierce, woven with threads of faith, belonging, and the unbreakable bond between a girl and her dog. I loved every word of this romantic tale.--Rebecca Ross, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Divine Rivals
Our Divine Mischief is a sweeping saga inspired by Scottish lore. Readers journey alongside three intrepid characters, one who is determined to prove her mettle through an exhilarating series of trials, one who is trying to find his worth after being deemed an outcast, and one who has a cold nose, wagging tail, and penchant for speaking in verse. With high stakes underscored by a cozy warmth, Our Divine Mischief explores themes of divine magic and the ways we find ourselves in the least expected places.--Autumn Krause, author of A Dress for the Wicked and Before the Devil Knows You're Here
Tender, adventurous, fierce, and free, Our Divine Mischief is a paean to magic, to the gods, to an older and wilder way--and the earnest search for one's place in the world.--Anna Bright, author of The Beholder duology and The Song That Moves the Sun
This book is about belonging--the place others hold for you and the place you carve out for yourself--and it's about love, in all its human, canine, and divine iterations. Smart, stirring, strange, and lyrical--don't miss it.--Joanna Ruth Meyer, author of Into the Heartless Wood and Wind Daughter
For the islanders of Fuiscea, everything is determined by the will of the gods. and Aacute;ila LacInis, a fisherman's daughter with tanned skin, green eyes, and dark, curly hair, awaits the moment when the goddess Yslet will tell her what her vocation will be. Only the Unblessed, the most unfortunate people on Fuiscea, are deprived by Yslet of any special aptitude. Among them is Hew LacEllan, a lanky, auburn-haired laborer with an unwavering faith in the gods despite the abuse he faces at the hands of his fellow islanders. To and Aacute;ila's shock, Yslet fails to appear at her Goddess Trial; and Aacute;ila instead is faced with Orail, a strange doglike creature who possesses the power to grant wishes. The goddess's absence means and Aacute;ila must complete a series of intensive Ordeals intended to test the gods' favor. In the process, Hew, and Aacute;ila, and Orail become bound together as three outcasts fighting the limits of tradition. Unfolding through their three alternating viewpoints (Orail's sections are in verse), the story's rich narration is sure to enchant fantasy lovers. While the first half of the novel seems disconnected from the conclusion due to an unexpected redirection of the twist-filled plot, themes of identity and belief are carried throughout a text that's layered with references to Scottish lore. An absorbing exploration of truest friendship and the fulfillment that comes from knowing one's worth.--Kirkus Reviews
