Heidi R. Kling likes people, stories and blue things. A native Californian, she relocated briefly to NYC where she earned her MFA in Writing for Children from the New School. Heidi resides with her family in Northern California just over the coastal mountains from the sea, where she alternately wears flip-flops and Ugg Boots. And is quite happy.
Sea was inspired by her husband's trip to Indonesia after the tsunami disaster in 2004.
Cynthia J Omololu was born in New Jersey, but grew up in San Diego. She is now living in Northern California with her husband and two sons.
After her kids were born, she was a stay-at-home mom for a few years and enjoyed reading to them.She realized that there weren't enough books about biracial kids and thought she should write one. How hard could it be? Find out just how hard as Cynthia takes us on her journey to publication.
My debut novel DIRTY LITTLE SECRETS is about a girl growing up in a hoarded home. TRANSCENDENCE and the sequel INTUITION are about a group of people who remember all of their past lives. The thriller THE THIRD TWIN will be out on February 24th, 2015.
