Fun Facts about me

Libby Hubscher Author of Meet Me in Paradise and other books


I only watch two kinds of shows:
The Great British Bake Off and Mandarin-language dramas.


I have a black belt in karate (and also coffee drinking).
I don't practice martial arts anymore because I've had too many concussions.


Meet Me in Paradise was the sixth book I wrote.
I'm working on my eighth book now. It's called Play for Me -- an enemies to lovers version of New Girl at a New England boarding school -- and comes out Spring 2023.


My husband and I met playing co-ed softball.
He knocked me off second base and I knocked him off his feet, sort of.


Believe it or not, books are not always the the longest thing I write for work.
Global value dossiers can be tomes.


My favorites movies are:
Something's Gotta Give, Wimbledon, and House of Flying Daggers.


I am searching for the perfect grain, dairy, and egg-free cherry pie.
