Hannah Steenbock – Feel-good Stories, Cozy Fantasy, Exciting Books

You must have come here for the books by Hannah Steenbock, so I’ll give you books.

Winds of Destiny and Pillars of the Empire

I’m back to writing epic fantasy with a twist – this series has Aztec vibes although it is firmly set in its own world.

Winds and Pillars are people with power who serve the Holy Empire, guided and supported by the priests. Every day, they work to improve the lives of people and to protect them from enemies, generously giving their energy. And in their twenty-fifth year, they make the ultimate sacrifice – giving their lives to the empire, having their throats cut on top of a pyramid.

The Winds are shamans, with individual powers that don’t follow any rules. The Pillars are elemental mages. A group that has one of each – four winds, four pillars – is called a House, and they spend their entire lives living and working together, until the Pillars die on the four pyramids of the Sacred Square. The Winds follow them into death not much later, anchoring the Empire’s defense dying on pyramids at the edges of it.

That is… unless they are the characters of my books.

Wolves of the South – Sweet Wolf Shifter Romance /Adventure

My latest series in yet another genre, although it is still fantasy. My Wolves are heroes but not alphas. They are honorable, caring, and tough, even the women. And yes, they do find love at the end of those stories. Feel-good books, remember?

The series is now complete, all seven books are available in all stores (and even libraries). I will miss writing them, so… if you want more Wolves, let me know.

Once in a while, a new idea hits for the Wolves (or even other shifters), so sign up to my newsletter (link below) if you never want to miss a new Wolf book.

Dragons – The Cloud Lands and more

I love my dragons, and I have published seven tales with dragons as important characters.

For me, dragons are people. Granted, they have reptilian bodies with scales, sharp teeth and dreadful talons. And they can breathe fire and do magic. Sometimes.

Here’s a gallery of my dragon books. A click on it will take you to the Dragon Page with all the download links.

The Franssisi Four Chronicles – Joanna Steenen

The Franssisi Four Chronicles are very clearly Science Fiction – the story takes place on a planet that was terraformed and colonized by humans, only to be invaded and taken over by aliens.

However, this is NOT your classic SF tale with spaceships, laser battles and air locks. It takes place on one planet, and only that one, Franssisi Four.

It’s NOT Romance, although it involves a lot of explicit bed scenes and eventually, love between humans and aliens (someone called it polyamory, in fact).

It is EPIC in scope, if not in cast.

It takes the hero, Zell, from a fairly primitive life in the Wilderness to a stark prison cell where he is expected to show his prowess as a human male. It lays out how he first builds friendship and then an alliance that will not just change his life and that of his alien friends but eventually, all lives on the whole planet, and possibly the entire galaxy.

This is a series that explores aspects of morality in many, many ways. What is acceptable, what works, what is categorically wrong? Lots of answers to that, in many different layers of society. Lots of cruelty and lots of caring, lots of heartache, and lots of daring…

Short Stories – Many Universes

I’ve written a bunch of short stories. I like fast-paced adventures, and that’s what I do in my short stories.

They are very varied. I’ve written for anthologies, and for myself. The main characters can be whales, centaurs, humans, and everyone fantasy.

Here are some titles. Click on the image to get to the Short Story Page.

Not nearly often enough.

Thing is, I prefer writing my stories.
