When six-year-old Hannah's brutal honesty is mistaken for lying, she stops speaking. Her family, her community, and eventually the entire nation, struggle to find meaning in her silence. All she wants is to find her momma, a little peace and quiet, and maybe some pancakes.
WINNER: Pinnacle Book Achievement Award, Summer 2014 -- Best Fiction
Hidden in protective foster care for twelve years, Hannah loses all contact with her mother and remains mute by choice. When she leaves foster care at age eighteen to search for her momma, a national debate rages over her silence. One word would put an end to the chaos... if only Hannah can find her voice.
"This book is so well written and Hannah is so compelling, her voice lingers in my mind long after I have finished reading. If Hannah's Voice doesn't end up on the bestseller's list, on every notable list... I will be shocked. I will definitely keep my eyes open for more from Robb Grindstaff!" ~ Michelle L. Johnson
"Hannah's Voice is a beautiful story, and I'm going to tell you about it, but before I do: seriously, you guys, read it. I'm not kidding. You'll be changed forever, inside... it's not a book with such strong thematic material that it will make anyone cringe, but it will be burned into your brain for eternity in such a delightful way. Touching, moving, funny, awesome. I can't say it enough: this book is revolutionary, and the best thing I've read in years." ~ Naomi Sarah

About the Author
In addition to a career as a newspaper editor, publisher, and manager, I’ve written fiction most of my life. The newspaper biz has taken my family and me from Phoenix, Arizona, to small towns in North Carolina and Texas, and from seven years in Washington, D.C., to five years in Asia. Born and raised a small-town kid, I’m as comfortable in Tokyo or Tuna, Texas. I now reside in a small community in Wisconsin where I manage the business operations of a daily newspaper. The variety of places I’ve lived and visited serve as settings for the characters who invade my head.
I’ve had a dozen short stories published in several print anthologies and e-zines, and several articles on the craft of writing fiction. My first novel, "Hannah’s Voice," debuted in January 2013, and "Carry Me Away" launched in September 2013. My third novel, "Turning Trixie," is in the works for 2015.
I also edit fiction and non-fiction books for authors from around the world. It helps that I’m fluent in five languages: U.S. English, U.K. English, Canadian English, and Australian English, plus my native language, Texan.
