Hannah Godfrey


Professional Bio

Hannah graduated from the Royal Veterinary College in 2011 and began work straight away at a busy mixed practice. Initially, she treated all species, but as the small animal hospital became busier, she focussed on small animals from 2014. She has a passion for soft tissue surgery as well as canine and feline dentistry, having completed additional training in both areas.
Since 2018, she has worked at a smaller, independent practice close to home, in order to devote more time to her other love – writing comedy fiction. She hopes to soon be a published author.

Hannah grew up in South Wales as one of triplets. She lives with her partner, her new baby, and her cats. Aside from writing and being a vet, Hannah enjoys running, baking and upcycling unloved furniture.

Hannah’s Pets

Hannah currently has only two cats, but fights a constant battle not to bring home every abandoned stray that comes into her work! Poppy is a hand-reared silver tabby cat who was found and brought in as a tiny kitten on one of her first nights on call. Ashton Kutcher is a young black and white moggie who was found on the side of a dual carriageway when he was just five weeks old. It is Hannah’s dream to have a ginger tabby cat, who she can name Richard Parker, from Life of Pi.

I enjoy the escapism and creativity of all forms of writing but I’m especially passionate about communication and connecting with people, be that through education or emotion.
