Best-selling novelist Robin Lee Hatcher is known for her heartwarming and emotionally charged stories of faith, courage, and love. She discovered her vocation after many years of reading everything she could put her hands on, including the backs of cereal boxes and ketchup bottles. The winner of the Idahope Writer of the Year, the Christy Award for Excellence in Christian Fiction, two RITA Awards for Best Inspirational Romance, two RT Career Achievement Awards (Americana Romance and Inspirational Fiction), and the RWA Lifetime Achievement Award, Robin is the author of over 60 novels. Her historical romance Catching Katie was named one of the Best Books of 2004 by the Library Journal.
Robin enjoys being with her family, spending time in the beautiful Idaho outdoors, reading books that make her cry, and watching romantic movies. She is passionate about the theater, and several nights every summer, she can be found at the outdoor amphitheater of the Idaho Shakespeare Festival, enjoying plays under the stars. Her main hobby (when time allows) is knitting, and she has a special love for making prayer shawls. Robin and her husband make their home on the outskirts of Boise, sharing it with Poppet, the high-maintenance Papillon, and Princess Pinky, the DC (demon cat).
A NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR: My career as a novelist (and my life) took a sudden turn the day I recognized God's call on my heart to write for Him. The stories I've written since are different from those I wrote prior to that significant moment. Many of my earlier novels (released in 1999 and earlier) contain elements that are contrary to what I hope to share with readers today. Therefore, I encourage readers to look for my newer novels rather than my older ones. Note that I have "redeemed" some of my earlier fiction, giving them a second chance to become the books I wish I'd written the first time around.
