Interview with Callie Hutton, Author of To Charm a Highlander

06 Dec 2023

What’s the story behind the story? What inspired you to write To Charm a Highlander?

Donella Sutherland is the youngest of her siblings. Several years ago her personality changed and she grew very quiet. So much so that the family and the rest of the clan thought she was simple-minded. Donella has been part of the series since the first book and it was time for her story…

If you had to pick theme songs for the main characters of To Charm a Highlander, what would they be?

Callum: All my lovin’. (The Beatles)

Donella: Bridge Over Trouble Waters (Simon & Garfunkel)

What’s your favorite genre to read? Is it the same as your favorite genre to write?

Yes, I read and write historical romance; I also write Victorian cozy mystery, but I don’t read it.

What books are on your TBR pile right now?

Saving Grace (Julie Garwood), Stolen Highland Hearts series (Jayne Castel), Her Master and Commander (Karen Hawkins), and about 40 more!

What scene in your book was your favorite to write?

The scene where Callum Gunn was about to be thrown out of the Sutherland castle because the Laird doesn’t trust the Gunn clan, and Callum saves Donella from certain death by catching her as she falls down a stone staircase.

Do you have a motto, quote, or philosophy you live by?

If you think you can, or your think you can’t, you’re probably right.

If you could choose one thing for readers to remember after reading your book, what would it be?

I’d like them to remember how many surprises are in the book.
