Heidi Hutchinson

Biography

Heidi Hutchinson was born in South Dakota and raised the exact right distance away from the Black Hills. She had an overactive imagination very early on, and wasted no time in getting most of her friends in trouble due to her unrealistic and completely ridiculous ideas. Seeing as she was so lazy and also afraid people would think she was bonkers, she didn't write down any of the story lines that played out in her daydreams.
During her high school years, she took pen to paper and filled more notebooks than she is proud of with angsty, depressing, self-depreciating poetry. This led to her writing down more things: notes, ideas, character bios, plot twists that had no plot yet to twist. After years of cleaning up her own scraps of imagination with nothing solid to hold on to, she sat down and wrote the story that had been in her head the longest. Fueled by coffee and her unwavering and perfectly normal devotion to Dave Grohl, she discovered a writer living inside of her.
She still lives in the Midwest, though not as close to the Black Hills as she would prefer, with her alarmingly handsome husband and their fearless child. They eat more pizza than God intended and she listens to her music the same way she lives: loudly.

Smashwords Interview

What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Coffee. Coffee inspires me to get out of bed.

But really, early morning sunshine is the best for writing.
What's the story behind your latest book?
Sushi and Sun Salutations started out with a little bit of real life at its core.
When I was in high school, I wrote desk poetry with someone I never met. We would create and complete each other's poems and never exchanged personal information. I still wonder who they were and where they ended up. I suppose writing this story was my way of paying homage to that person.
Also, the idea of falling in love with an anonymous poet was such a fantastic idea, I couldn't pass it up.
