Meet the Author



Bobby Hutchinson was born in small town, interior British Columbia. Her father was an underground coal-miner, her mother, a housewife, and both were storytellers. Learning to read was the most significant event in her early life.

Bobbie married young and had three sons; the middle child was deaf, and he taught her patience. After twelve years, she divorced and worked at various odd jobs, directing traffic around construction sites; daycaring challenged children; and selling fabric, by the pound, at a remnant store.

Following this, she mortgaged her house and bought the remnant store. Accompanied by her sewing machine, she began to sew one dress a day. The dresses sold, but the fabric did not, so she hired four seamstresses and turned the old remnant store into a boutique.

After twelve successful years, Bobbie sold the business and decided to run a marathon. Training was a huge bore, so she made up a story, about Pheiddipedes, the first marathoner, as she ran. She copied it down and sent it to Chatelaine Magazine's, short story contest, won first prize, and became a writer.

Bobbie remarried and divorced again, writing all the while. Today, she has thirty-five published books, and, currently, is working on three or four more. She has four enchanting grandchildren and lives alone. Bobbie runs, swims, does yoga, meditates and likes this quote by Dolly Parton: "Decide who you are, and then do it on purpose."

    This is a fabulous contemporary romance with a touch of a mystery

    In Valdez, Alaska helicopter tour guide owner Ivy Pierce assumes upon meeting Alex Ladrovik that he is another vagabond looking to temporarily work for food. However, he shocks her when he stays around to continue to help her after her partner-uncle has a heart attack. Already attracted to Alex before his kindness, Ivy sleeps with him.----- Alex has no time for romantic alliances as he follows the route his father took three decades ago before vanishing. However, he cannot leave Ivy at a time she needs help. Even harder for him is that he falling in love, but he has a mission to complete and a home in California waiting for his return. She wants him to stay, but can understand why he would not want to remain in a cold pristine wilderness.----- This is a fabulous contemporary romance with a touch of a mystery (what happened to his dad?) that emphasizes falling in love in a remote area, the stark beauty vividly described. The lead couple is a delightful charming pair as Ivy and Alex are every attracted to one another though her initial impression is that he is a homeless hobo and his is of a frontier woman who needs no man. The suspense is actually in the romance as fans will wonder whether he stays, he goes home alone or she goes with him.----- Harriet Klausner
