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 (EntangledTeen), is the updated paperback of award-winning debut SEA (PenguinTeen), the story of finding love and surviving loss in the most unexpected of circumstances.
Its sequel, WHERE THE SEA TAKES ME, is for the Team Deni vs. Team Spider readers. 🙂
PAINT MY BODY RED, takes place in pressure-cooker Silicon Valley and on a ranch in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Reviews call it “balm for the soul” and “a must read for teens and adults.” It’s been translated into several languages. Check out the German cover and title which translated to English means UNDER THE WIDE BLUE SKY WITH YOU. Aw!
NOT OKAY, CUPID, is a light and fun story of bad boy Felix James and straight shooter Hazel McAllister forming a revenge plan…and possibly falling under Cupid’s spell. MASQUERADE GIRL is up next in 2020! Keep an eye on Heidi’s Entangled Publishing page for updates and subscribe to her newsletter here!
Although writers don’t necessary need any former education, Heidi majored in literature and creative writing at UC Santa Cruz and earned her MFA in Writing for Children from The New School Writing program in New York City. She volunteers with San Mateo and San Francisco County Libraries as a Teen Mental Health advocate through literature and writing, most recently a visiting author at BAYA and YANovCon, and runs a children’s theatre on Stanford Campus where she and her zany, passionate students write and perform original plays.
