Pamela Fagan Hutchins is an award-winning and bestselling author of mystery, romance, and comedy. Publishing as an independent author, she had published the “Katie and Annalise,” “Michele,” “Emily,” “Ensemble Mystery,” “Ava,” “Maggie,” “What Doesn’t Kill You” and the “Patrick Flint” series. Apart from her fiction writing, she also shares the knowledge she has acquired over the years through online classes, manuscript consults and writing retreats. She also has written an author guide on how to publish as an Indie author titled “What Kind of Loser Indie Publishes.” Pamela loves to describe herself as a woman having it all which means she has a little of everything. She is a musician, mediocre endurance athlete, consultant, wife, investigator, mom of an Asperger’s & ADHD son, human resources executive, business owner, employment attorney and of course author. She published her first novel “Saving Grace” in 2012 and since then became a prolific author with more than twenty titles to her name. She has several awards to her name that include best adult mystery winner and USA Best Books Fiction: Cross-Genre. She also runs a podcast titled “Wine Women & Writing,” where she interviews her favorite female authors. When she is not writing, she usually goes alongside her husband on treks into the frozen north of Wyoming.

When Pamela was in the third grade, her teachers told her parents that she had everything she needed to become an author. However, although she loved to read she never wanted anything to do with writing as she looked forward to becoming a veterinarian. She was stubborn in resisting her parents’ and teachers’ entreaties even though she won the UIL “Ready Writing Champ” competition. In college, she had quit all her English courses and decided that writing was something she definitely did not want to do. In her third year of law school, she got a part-time job teaching writing to freshmen. Afterward, she would write her fingers off in her human resources and legal careers, where she had to prepare a ton of reports, briefs and motions. However, she started writing out of the blue when she was in her thirties starting with little things such as weekly letters with anecdotes about her wacky life in the Caribbean, family updates and Christmas letters. By her mid-thirties, she was working on the manuscript for her first novel and by the time she turned forty, there was nothing she wanted to do more than write.

Pamela Fagan Hutchins was inspired to write her debut novel “Saving Grace” from living and owning a half-finished rainforest house in the US Virgin Islands town of St Croix. Hutchins thought some of the events, people and places she was experiencing were too interesting not to write about. Encouraged by her Island-born husband, she went on to write stories of her experiences. She wrote stories on themes of self-control, how to achieve growth and master oneself while still maintaining the serenity to release anything that is outside of your control. She started writing the “Katie & Annalise” series long before she published her debut as she had all the material for the series five years before the publishing of “Saving Grace.” Nonetheless, she had to go back and completely rewrite Grace’s story once she was done writing the series. Pamela had to delete 85,000 words and start from a base of 15,000 words which was quite a hard thing to do. However, once she started writing, everything flowed like magic and she was done in six months.

Pamela Fagan Hutchins’s “Saving Grace” is the story of Katie Connell, a high strung attorney going through a bad patch in her life. Her parents recently died in a tragic accident and then she has another bombshell dropped on her when her man says that he is not interested in a committed relationship. To dull her pain, she has turned to alcohol and this means that her professionalism has also taken a dive. Family and friends recommend that she go on a vacation to recharge and get her act together. She agrees and heads to a tropical island though she ends up on the very island where her parents lost their lives. Once on the island, she by chance meets Ava and they become fast friends. Her new friend is determined to help her find out anything to do with the tragic accident that had taken her parents’ lives. But before they can unearth anything substantial, she needs to go back home as she needs to work. Katie promptly makes a mess of her first-ever criminal case. Things get even worse when Ava calls to say her boyfriend is dead and that his house is up for sale. Of course, she is interested and flies back to the island, where she thinks she can relax and think of her future. But upon landing, she learns that her best friend Ava is now the lead suspect in her lover’s murder.

“Leaving Annalise” the second novel of the series is set 6 months from the endong of the debut. Katie is nearly done with fixing up the house she just bought and is about to move into what they have nicknamed the “jumbie house.” She is thrilled with the move into the new house but as soon as she moves in, she realizes that there are very strange things happening in her home. Between wondering how there came to be holes in the walls and trying to find a missing tile, there is an unexpected arrival in St. Marcos. In addition to all that, Bart the new arrival that had been sending mixed signals to Katie is acting like a jerk. In the meantime, Ava is busy trying to get a producer to produce some of the work they have been practicing. The unexpected arrival has a lot of baggage but Katie is soon falling for him though she soon breaks it off when she realizes that he is going to be more trouble than he is worth. But Bart is not going to go away quietly when Katie breaks it off with him and starts acting like a stalker.

Pamela Hutchins’s “Finding Harmony” opens to Katie as a mother of twins and now living in San Marco with Nick. Things were going so well until they found a dead body on their driveway. It was initially declared a suicide but Katie and Nick think otherwise. They decide to investigate and find out who killed Eddy. But once they start investigations, Nick shuts out Katie and becomes very secretive. To make it even worse, Elena who is the widow of the dead man is very attractive and Katie who is battling baby weight is afraid of what may happen. There is a rumor going around town that Eddy killed himself as a protest against Nick and Katie has to call upon all her willpower not to confront him. But then Nick leaves for work one day and never comes back home with his cell and everything that could be used to get hold of him getting no response. Katie believes that her man is in trouble and teams up with her father in law to try to find him. But will it be too late when they find him?

    Will you be writing any more Patrick Flint books. I have really enjoyed all you books, but while reading the Patrick Flint books I have been looking back on simpler time when there weren’t cell phones and video games and people talked to each other and listened more. Thank you for all your books and my means of escape.
