Meet Hani Bruce

Debut children’s book author and indie publisher Hani Bruce released her first book, PC Dill Pickle – The Case Of The Missing Bear in 2022, with two more books in production.

The PC Dill Pickle series is about a Police Constable (PC) pickle who lives in a fridge. He cracks cases alongside colourful characters like Sonia Soda, Greg Egg, Tony Pepperoni and Rocky Broccolini while prompting the reader to piece together the clues.

While working as a brand builder and copywriter helping others find their ‘voice’, Hani found her own in writing the PC Dill Pickle series.

‘Tapping into a completely different form of creative writing and letting loose with my imagination has been a thrilling adventure. Nothing is too weird. The ideas don’t need to be logical. It has been a fun and freeing experience.’

Hani’s husband, Adam, illustrates her books and is instrumental in exploring the story and character ideas. Together, they agree on an everyday situation or problem (like losing a toy) and plot out how characters can solve it through critical thinking and teamwork.

These rhyming books are fun to read and show children that many problems are solvable when they ask for help and work together.
