Author Interview: Amy Hutchinson

Amy Hutchinson likes to think of herself as a Renaissance woman because that sounds flattering. Others may accuse her of lacking focus and the ability to choose one profession. Some of her passions include: reading, writing, traveling, teaching, painting, woodworking, kung fu, boxing and scuba diving. She also loves science and is considering a PhD in one of the biological sciences, but that is only after she finishes writing all the novels she has planned, which could take several years.

Right now, Amy Hutchinson is a traveler and a writer, but not a travel writer. She used to teach 4th grade to adorable children in Shanghai, China, and she would say that her Mandarin is pretty good, but her students would disagree. She now lives in Chicago with two cats and a lot of books. (Source: Goodreads)

All That Glitters by Jackie Sonnenberg


A jewelry thief is on the loose in the town of Wickerwire, Iowa. He leaves behind no trace except for his newly-established calling card: candy in place of the jewels he steals, the media giving him the nickname of “The Candy Caper.” He makes his mark and vanishes, and no one seems to have any leads on him whatsoever. He won’t give up until he finds his special item…but what exactly is he looking for? And what exactly is in it for him?

Said to be a “backwards superhero story” telling the story of a would-be villain, All That Glitters is a satisfying read for everyone and anyone who has ever fantasized about having a double life, a secret identity as well as a special ability…and whether this ability is seen as a gift or a curse.
