Writer. Mom. Grandma.

Joni Hubred grew up in small towns where she fell in love with books and longed to follow in the footsteps of Agatha Christie, Louise Fitzhugh, and the authors of her favorite Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys mysteries.

After a 25-year career in print and electronic journalism, she created and operated a much-loved news website in Farmington, Michigan, which closed in 2021.

Joni then “semi-retired” to Minnesota, where she writes mystery and local news in Steele County, spends time with her children, grandchildren, and four grand-dogs, and builds her TBR pile. To connect, drop her an email or visit Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn.
