Best Selling Author

In 2013, Amy G. released her first Children’s Book, Smarty Marty’s Got Game about a girl baseball genius who teaches her little brother to love the game through scoring the game. It went on to become a Best Seller. In 2015, Gutierrez added, Smarty Marty’s Official Game Day Score Book for kids and adults to document their game day experiences and have a keepsake to discuss for years to come. Her latest addition to the Smarty Marty series, Smarty Marty Steps Up Her Game, is a chapter book that gives pause to gender stereotypes by placing Marty, an amazingly confident girl and baseball wiz, in a situation to break the mold, but not without challenges – much like the game itself.

“A San Francisco Giants in-game reporter, Gutierrez delivers a primer not just on baseball in general but on the intricacies of scoring the game like a pro and pitching the slang like a fastball. Baseball-lover Marty wants to teach her younger brother, baseball-doubter Mikey, to love the game as much as she does, so she takes him to the stadium, where she handily shows off her copious knowledge. Marty learned to love the game from her great-grandmother, and she’s determined to pass along the enthusiasm and teach Mikey some valuable information: What does a backward K mean? What’s a 6–4–3? What do you call the first two hitters? What are you telling someone when you shout, “Grab some pine?” McCauley hits a homer with clean, charming art that gives emotional investment to the facts and captures moments of the game in its greatest glory. From first pitch to grand slam, Gutierrez delivers a fun, snappy lesson. A joy for new fans and seasoned pros dying to share their love of the game.” Jesse Karp
