Lisa Hutchison is an award winning Canadian author, living with her husband in Stratford, Ontario. She has penned two very successful books, “Pieces of Us” and “Iron Annie and a long journey”.
Both are books based on first person experiences and both are compelling accounts of her own life. Her latest book “Bertha” retraces the life of her great-grandmother.
Lisa was born in Germany, immigrated with her parents as a child and grew up mainly in Toronto. She has a degree in Commerce and has worked mostly in the financial field. Since retirement she has, together with her husband, travelled the world. She is also an active volunteer at the local hospital, church and retirement homes.
She has always loved to write: essays, short stories, poetry, music lyrics, journals and was instrumental in setting up and administrating her church’s monthly newsletter for many years.
While doing research into her family’s history she found enough material to write “Iron Annie and a long journey”, a biography on her parent’s life.
Lisa and her husband Robert have three adult children and six grown grand-children. If they cannot be found in Stratford, they are in Portugal – their favourite winter retreat.
