The view from "the office."

Libbie Hawker writes historical and literary fiction featuring complex characters and rich details of time and place.

She is the author of more than a dozen novels and three books for writers, including the bestselling "Take Off Your Pants: Outline Your Books for Faster, Better Writing."

When she's not writing, she can be found working in her one-acre mini-farm on San Juan Island, off the coast of Washington State. She is an avid seed-saver, with plans to start a sheep dairy and permaculture teaching institute in the near future.

Libbie also enjoys sewing her own clothes, baking (and eating) entirely too many cookies, and working on her podcast about the '80s cartoon "Jem." She lives outside Friday Harbor, Washington with her husband and two naughty cats. Her Instagram feed overflows with cat pics and island imagery.
