H. M. L. Swann
In 2015, Swann received her bachelor’s degree in music and spent the following two years teaching piano and reading fluency in her hometown. In May of 2017, she joined the Peace Corps and moved to Mongolia to teach English as a foreign language. English captured her heart with all of its nuances and syntax.
Winter in Mongolia was frigid with negative 40-degree that days stretched on for weeks. Seeking refuge from the bitter wind and coal-filled air, Swann started writing.
Before pursuing her master’s degree in the United Kingdom, she spent a year teaching in South Korea. She has completed two fantasy novels and is working on a third.
Swann will graduate from the University of Manchester in December 2021.
