About me

Best-selling writer Bobby Hutchinson writes stories about almost everything, as long as everything involves romance, quirky people, outrageous kids, deafness, time travel, or medicine, with most of which she's familiar.

(Well, maybe not time travel. But who knows?)

She lives in a funky little cottage in Cranbrook, B.C., a small city in the Canadian Rockies. In the summer, she hauls her very small travel trailer, Calamity Jane, to campgrounds. In the winter, she hibernates.

She's written over 60 books, mostly romance, with a few memoirs tossed in. How Not To Run A B&B, set in Vancouver, was chosen by the Kootenay Library Association as Best Book of the Year, and is now being made into a film.

She's never run a restaurant. She isn’t a private investigator, she doesn’t do phone sex for money and she’s not running a dating service. But some of her wonderful, gregarious female friends have done all of the above, and she’s used their hands on research for her books.

She has directed traffic around construction sites, owned a boutique full of clothes she designed, and run several popular B&B’s. She loves to cook, listen to guest’s life stories and also eavesdrop on private conversations at Starbucks.

She likes a quote by Dolly Parton: “Decide who you are, and then do it on purpose.”

She lives in the land of possibility. And she's now writing faster than ever, because at 83, who knows when she'll head off to seek the Great Perhaps?
