Ann Hutchinson has authored short works of fiction*, non-fiction, articles and memoir, and co-edited Cry of the Nightbird: Writers Against Domestic Violence. Now she writes marketing copy for a living, because she loves being cleverly concise. When she is not dispensing words of encouragement, hope and inspiration here or through her songwriting, she is dancing, singing or tormenting the piano.

In 2014, with her husband Kevin Hutchinson, she founded Sonoma County Dance Beat, to help other avid dancers like herself, find great live music to dance to in Sonoma County. Through SCDB, she is a talent buyer, event coordinator, emcee and teaches partner dancing with Kevin. They also have a relationship workshop for which a byproduct is learning to dance.
