Heidi R. Kling writes relatable young people in fantastic situations – books that beg the question: what would you do in their shoes?
Her latest, WHERE I FOUND YOU, is the 10-year anniversary paperback version of hardcover award-winning debut SEA (PenguinTeen) about a teen who joins her father in a overseas mission to help Indonesian kids orphaned by the tsunami.
Its much-anticipated sequel WHERE THE SEA TAKES ME, released with Entangled Teen June, 2018. PAINT MY BODY RED, a contemporary mystery, takes place in pressure cooker Silicon Valley and a dilapidated ranch in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Boasting the importance of family, self-regulation and perseverance reviews coin it “balm for the soul” and “a must read for teens and adults.”
Her lighter novels and fantasy works include NOT OKAY, CUPID, a comedy of errors and seaside revenge and forthcoming MASQUERADE GIRL.
Heidi also created the fantasy series Spellspinners of Melas County, an interactive gaming app with a start-up about talented witches and warlocks competing for dark and light magic.
