About Pamela Fagan Hutchins

Pamela Fagan Hutchins, President of the Houston Writers Guild, is an employment attorney and workplace investigator by day, who by night writes award-winning and bestselling romantic mysteries (Saving Grace, Leaving Annalise, Finding Harmony) and hilarious nonfiction (How to Screw Up Your Kids, What Kind of Loser Indie Publishes?, and others). She is passionate about great writing, smart authorpreneurship and her oddball urban family: good-looking husband (1), offspring (5), dogs (4), goats (4), ducks (2), and heifer (1). She also leaps medium-tall buildings in a single bound, if she gets a good running start.

After reading all 5 of her new releases what I first thing I think of is, she is a great story teller. She knows how to get you to drop your guard and pull you in. Some stories made me smile and others had me spewing my coffee and laughing out loud. While all the stories weave together, they are not about one animal or one scene or one period of time. A lot of the book is based on the authors experiences living in the Caribbean and the book at times transports you there and lets you feel it and see it through her experiences.

I can see why Pamela Hutchins has won so many state and national awards for her writing. She is such a fantastic story teller. Our family has always had pets and I found all her pet stories wonderful. Not all are funny- some made me cry but I definitely loved this book.

Loved it loved it loved it. This is not just someones ode to their lovable pooch. It is a collection of stories about animals, ghosts, bugs... think creatures. It is funny, creative, touching and moves so fast you want it to be twice as long when you reach the end.
One other interesting thing about this book is that the author weaves in a couple of fiction excerpts from yet to be published books. Might sound a little weird, the way I describe it, but it works, and it great. You will not regret the purchase.

A funny and entertaining look at life in paradise, in the tropics and in our minds. And sharing it with our animal friends. I loved the montage of stories. And for someone who also loves animals, I think this is a great read of how all creatures great and small are important to us all.

Perfect for any animal lover! A lot of the stories were hilarious (loved the frog story), and some were more serious. The setting and background info made even the most unexpected stories interesting. I didn't think I'd be able to relate to animals in the Virgin Islands, but I loved the descriptions of the geckos and gungalos and even the bats. Pamela does a fantastic job of grabbing the reader's attention and keeping it. I loved everything about this book, read it cover to cover. All the stories about the Houston dogs and cat were funny and endearing. Hope there's more to come.

I really enjoyed this book, having several animals of my own I found her stories to be simply hilarious, but also engaging in a way that really made me feel connected with the story and the that it was all unfolding around me.

Menagerie: a collection of wild or unusual animals. That would explain this author's delightful stories about the varied animals she has interacted with (even in her imagination!). Fictional or true, I love all the stories in this book. I have no animals in my life but if I did, I would want this collection of wild and unusual, protective and hysterical ones. The stories warm your heart, give you goosebumps sometimes, and make you want to run right out and get a pet! Or, in the author's case, two or three or four! This is a heartwarming book that will move your emotions, make you chuckle and make you glad you picked it up to read!
