Before anything else, I’m a Christ-follower, a husband of one, a father of three, and a grandfather of nine. I cut my teeth as an author writing Westerns--stories set on the broad stage of a breathtaking yet daunting land, populated with colorful (if somewhat fanciful) heroes and heroines who overcome frightful odds, almost always at great cost. Texas was my home for a few years, and subsequent visits to states throughout the West have only served to deepen my enthusiasm for the region and appreciation of its people.
I've also been a longtime enthusiast of America's first major national pastime--baseball, a game played from coast to coast by the late 1800s. I hope readers enjoy my newly released vintage baseball stories every bit as much as they've enjoyed my Westerns.
What Readers Are Saying about GP Hutchinson
"GP Hutchinson has the gift to tell a compelling tale, enlighten you without preaching and keep you on the edge of your seat."
- Alex Cord, Western TV & Movie Star
"This is a novel that could stand side-by-side with any Western written by any author the world over and be judged as a top-notch entry."
- Paul L. Thompson, Bestselling Author of more than 63 Western novels
"Strong Suspicions is peppered with numerous tense encounters with various foes, and builds like a brooding symphony toward the final, dramatic confrontation. I give it a hearty five stars. I loved it. My recommendation: grab both volumes in the Emmett Strong Western Series now. You'll have many hours of entertainment and escape to the wild streets of 1880s El Paso."
- Geoff Baggett, Readers' Favorite
