ABOUT AMY BEARCE

  • Amy writes fantasy and light science fiction for young readers and the young at heart. She is the author of the World of Aluvia series and SHORTCUTS (CBAY Books, 2019), for grades 4 and up. She is also a former reading teacher and school librarian who has written over 250 articles, short stories, and poems for state standardized reading tests. As an Army kid, she moved eight times before she was eighteen, so she feels especially fortunate to be married to her high school sweetheart. Together they’re raising two daughters in San Antonio.
