Wine, Women and Writing

USA Today bestseller and Silver Falchion Best Mystery winner Pamela Fagan Hutchins talks with other authors about stories with complex, authentic females at their cores as well as the issues women face in real life and how these translate into great reads. With humor, the occasional dive into oversharing and—gasp—irreverence, and vast quantities of wine, coffee, or . . . whatever gets us through another day!

I am a wannabe barrel racer afraid of going fast, an eater of ribeye, a rescuer of dogs, a fangirl podcaster, and the author of USA Today bestselling mysteries.{By the way, to get a free starter library, exclusives, first looks, and special deals with my newsletter, go to}

My hunky husband and I ride our beloved draft cross horses way up in the frozen north of Snowheresville, WY. When I’m not writing or riding, I’m passionate about hiking, always with a couple of rescue dogs (and an occasional goat and donkey), bear spray, a mountain lion knife, and my Judge. NO ANIMALS HAVE BEEN HARMED IN THE MAKING OF THIS LIFE ADVENTURE (but don’t sneak up on me).

I’ve made some lists and won some awards, yada yada. 2020 Amazon Charts Top 25 bestseller. 2018 USA Today Bestseller. The 2017 Silver Falchion for Best Adult Mystery WINNER (Fighting for Anna), the 2016 and 2015 WINNERS for USA Best Books Fiction: Cross Genre (Hell to Pay, Heaven to Betsy), and others. With books “in print” of over 3,000,000, readers seem to enjoy the books—I think they have exceptionally good taste. {insert goofy grin here} Lots of them follow my show Wine Women & Writing, too, where I fangirl my favorite authors and interview them for your listening and viewing pleasure.
