About HEIDI

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.

“I was almost nervous to read this book. The subject matter seemed as if it could take me to a dark place that was just too dark. It was a bit how I felt when I first started reading the Hunger Games. Do I really want to go where this author is going to take me? Do I trust that I’ll emotionally be OK after reading it? There are just certain subjects that feel too serious. Too raw. I am so glad that I trusted and read. As someone who has lived in Silicon Valley, I especially appreciated the insight provided and the “character development” of the setting – rang true. Felt real. I have friends and family who have struggled with thoughts of suicide. I didn’t know if I could enjoy a book on this topic. Reading it was actually a balm for my soul – as this topic is one that I continue to struggle to understand.

A few weeks now after reading, I still love the emotion that tugs at me when I think about it. It has stayed with me. In a good way.

It was a bit how I felt when I started reading HTE Hunger Games. Would I be okay? I love the I still love the emotion that tugs when I think about it. after. In a good way.”

Quarantined cruise ship romance told in online installments

Bay Area author Heidi Kling tells a hopeful love story set during a viral outbreak with “Love in the Time of Quarantine”

When Heidi R. Kling first heard about the Diamond Princess, the idea for her next novel struck.

In early February, the 2,600-capacity cruise ship was quarantined off the coast of Tokyo as passengers faced a COVID-19 outbreak onboard. Back then, the new coronavirus was considered a relatively distant threat in the U.S. But when a sister cruise, the Grand Princess, quarantined at the Port of Oakland in March, fear of the pandemic escalated.

By the time Kling approached her editor about the novel, the idea for the book — a group of people quarantined on a ship amid a viral outbreak — felt newly sensitive.
