Author, philosopher, speaker, copywriter, and entrepreneur

Ann Hutchinson has authored short fiction, articles, and memoir. She is currently writing memoir and self-help books.

Ann has been writing, in one form or another, all her life. Even in her teens, she would come up clever ways to express philosophical truths.

Her mastery of flash fiction and flash memoir led her to marketing copy and songwriting, because she learned to be the queen of concise. While digital marketing pays the bills, her true passion is sharing encouraging stories, both written and spoken, with others.

Building on her passion for dancing to live music, in 2014, Ann created an online calendar that lists all the places to dance to live music in Sonoma County (when there is not a pandemic afoot). Through her community service organization, Sonoma County Dance Beat, she acts as talent buyer, event coordinator, emcee and, with her husband and dance partner, Kevin Hutchinson, teaches partner dancing.

When she is not paying the bills with marketing copy or dispensing words of encouragement, hope and inspiration, she is dancing, hiking, walking, reading or riding on the back of Kevin’s motorcycle to the coast.
