Hanna Jansen is an author with commitment and passion. Fourteen children from all over the world, mostly from Africa, found a new home with her and her husband.

She is particularly interested in the question of how people from very different origins and cultures can live together and enrich one another. After most of her children left for their own contexts, a new phase in life began for Hanna Jansen and her husband. With their youngest they moved to a small village in the Volcanic Eifel, where they found their dream house and now say good night to the foxes with their horse, dog and cat.

Hanna Jansen’s novel Over a Thousand Hills I Walk With You was awarded, among others, the Buxtehude Bull and, in the USA, the gold medal of the “Independent Publisher Book Award”.
