Pamela and her Road to Joy
Pamela Fagan Hutchins (that’s me!) writes about the myth of “having it all” from the busy position of having a little too much of everything: writer, mediocre endurance athlete (triathlon, marathons), wife, mom of an ADHD son, five kids/step-kids, business owner (www.epspros.com), recovering employment attorney and human resources executive, consultant, musician, and Aggie/Longhorn hybrid. Basically, I manage to do just enough to screw everything up. I did win Romance in the 2010 Writers’ League of Texas Manuscript Competition for Leaving Annalise and Mainstream Fiction in the 2010 Writers’ League of Texas Manuscript Competition for Conceding Grace, both for unpublished books, but that probably means they didn’t have enough entries.
She is I am well-known for my Type A slightly OCD tendencies — and alphabet soup life — and for making everyone around me tired. I am never without my iPhone and rarely without my red Vaio laptop. I live with my husband and our three youngest kids plus 200 pounds of pets in Houston, but our hearts are still in St. Croix, USVI.
The name of my blog — Road to Joy (or it might be Rode to Joy, depends upon my mood each day) is a song reference; my husband didn’t get it, possibly because as a rock bassist he doesn’t listen to enough classical music. My entire family lives in terror of earning a mention on these pages.
