Amy Hatvany: Simon & Schuster Speakers Bureau

Amy Hatvany

Best-selling author and motivational speaker.

Amy Hatvany graduated with a degree in Sociology only to discover most sociologists are unemployed. Soon followed a variety of jobs – some of which she loved, like decorating wedding cakes; others which she merely tolerated, like receptionist. In 1998, Amy finally decided to sell her car, quit her job, and take a chance on her passion: writing books. Her background in sociology inspires and informs much of her writing as she tackles timely and controversial issues in her novels including mental illness, domestic abuse, alcoholism, and acquaintance rape. She is the author of Best Kept Secret, Outside the Lines (a Target book club pick in 2012 and a Costco Pennie’s Pick in 2013), The Language of Sisters, Heart Like Mine, Safe With Me, Somewhere Out There (a Target Recommended Read), and It Happens All the Time. Amy spends most of her time today with her second and final husband, Stephan. (Seriously, if this one doesn’t work out, she’s done, kaput, no more husbands.) She stays busy with her two children, Scarlett and Miles, and her “bonus child,” Anna. Their blended family also includes two four-legged hairy children, commonly known as Black Lab mutts, Kenda and Dolcé.
