About the author (2012)

Bobby Hutchinson was born in small-town interior British Columbia. Learning to read was the most significant event of her early life. Bobby married young and had three sons. Her middle boy was deaf, and he taught her patience. The other two were rambunctious. They taught her forbearance. After twelve years of marriage she divorced and worked at various odd jobs: directing traffic around construction sites, caring for challenged children and selling fabric by the pound at a remnant store. Eventually, she mortgaged her house and bought the store. Accompanied by her sewing machine, she began to sew one dress a day. The dresses sold, the fabric didn't, so she hired four seamstresses and turned the store into a boutique. After twelve successful years, Bobby sold the business and decided to run a marathon. Training was a huge bore, so she made up a story about Pheiddipides, the first marathoner, as she ran. She copied it down, sent it to Chatelaine short story contest and won first prize. Presto, she became a writer. She married again, divorced again, writing all the while. She published about fifty-five books for major publishers and is always writing, working on ebooks now. After many adventures and many moves, she came home to Sparwood, the coal mining town where she was born. She lives alone, except for two rabbits who keep escaping. She has two of her six grandchildren living just down the street--they own the rabbits but Bobby feeds them. She walks, reads, writes and likes this quote: "When you change the way you look at a thing, the thing you look at changes.
