Bonnie-Sue Hitchcock was born and raised in Alaska. For many years she was a reporter for Alaska Public Radio, and she was the host and producer of Independent Native News, a daily newscast which aired in the U.S. and Canada and focused on Alaska Native issues, American Indians, and Canada's First Nations. She has two children who've spent most of their summers fishing commercially on their family boat in Southeast Alaska (except for the year they jumped ship to run an espresso stand out of a wall tent at a remote hotspring).

Her news stories and creative essays have appeared on NPR; in the Anchorage Daily News, High Country News, the Los Angeles Review and elsewhere. She has an MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults from Hamline University.

Bonnie-Sue's first novel, The Smell of Other People's Houses, tells the stories of teenagers whose quirky, tragic and interconnected lives are shaped by an equally unsentimental environment—Alaska in the early '70s. It will be published in 2016 by Wendy Lamb Books/Random House in the U.S. and Canada and by Faber in the U.K.
