ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Heidi R. Kling
Heidi R. Kling writes about normal young women in not-so-normal situations - books that beg the question: what would I do in her shoes?
PAINT MY BODY RED is a young adult contemporary drama with dark suspense and romance, eighteen-year-old Paige Mason escapes her pressure cooker life in California to her father's dilapidated ranch in Jackson Hole, Wyoming where, with the help of a charmingly steadfast cowboy and a wild horse, she faces the raw truth of her past in order to rebuild her life. The reviews compare it to 13 REASONS WHY and SPEAK, calling it "balm for the soul" and "a must read for teens and adults."
NOT OKAY, CUPID, a seaside tale of flirtatious revenge, launched in January. Readers are falling in love with Felix James and Hazel, comparing the romantic comedy to "10 Things I Hate About You" and Felix to our favorite bad boy football player Tim Riggins. The first book in the High School Heartbreakers series set in and around Valentine's Day, Halloween, and Christmas. MASQUERADE GIRL launches Halloween!
Her acclaimed debut SEA (2010, Penguin) will be re released in a special edition before its sequel OF EARTH AND SKY Fall, 2017. OF EARTH AND SKY takes place three years after the end of SEA. (No spoilers if you haven't read it, but those of you who do remember!) SEA was an IndieNext Pick, Northern California Book of the Year nominee, Gateway Reader's Award choice and Scholastic Readers Pick among other generous accolades.
In additional to contemporary novels, Heidi is the author of the bestselling Spellspinners of Melas County series, starting with WITCH'S BREW. Told in dual narratives, four books are currently out in this "Romeo and Juliet with magic" series readers compare to stories by LJ Smith, Cassandra Clare and Melissa de la Cruz.
Heidi majored in literature and creative writing in college and in grad school, where she earned her Master's in Creative Writing from The New School in New York City. She's honored to be included in New School Writing Program's 2015 list of faculty and alumni. She works too much, reads a ton and is way too dedicated to serial TV (The Affair and Homeland are her faves) and dark chocolate. She lives in the California Bay Area with her lovely husband, two children and shaggy dog, Sailor Lily, right over the coastal mountains from the sea. She's very grateful.
