Dot Hutchison




Dot Hutchison is the author of A Wounded Name, a young adult novel based on Shakespeare's Hamlet, and the adult thriller The Butterfly Garden.

With past experience working at a Boy Scout camp, a craft store, a bookstore, and the Renaissance Faire (as a human combat chess piece), Hutchison prides herself on remaining delightfully in tune with her inner young adult.

She loves thunderstorms, mythology, history, and movies that can and should be watched on repeat.

“Some people stay broken. Some pick up the pieces and put them back together with all the sharp edges showing.”
Dot Hutchison, The Butterfly Garden

“I think a trauma doesn’t stop just because you’ve been rescued.”
Dot Hutchison, The Butterfly Garden

“What choice are you making, Desmond?”
“I don’t think I’m making any choice right now.”
“Then you’re automatically making the wrong ones.” He straightened, mouth open to protest, but I held up my hand. “Not making a choice is a choice. Neutrality is a concept, not a fact. No one actually gets to live their lives that way.”
Dot Hutchison, The Butterfly Garden
