Meet 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? 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.
Meet Where I Found You (Sea #1)!
Until her dad throws down the challenge of a lifetime: spend the summer with his humanitarian team in Indonesia, working with orphans who lost everything in a massive tsunami.
The day they arrive, Sienna meets a mysterious boy named Deni, whose dark, intense eyes make her heart race. Their stolen nights force her to open up and live in a way she thought she couldn't anymore. When she’s with Deni, she remembers the girl she used to be…and starts to feel like the woman he sees in her.
A woman he wants for his own.
But when Deni’s past comes looking for him, Sienna’s faced with losing another person she loves. She can’t do it. Not again.
Fortunately, this time, she has a plan.

Top 5 Swoony Destination Love Stories
WHERE I FOUND YOU (Sea, #1) takes place in a charming, chilly Northern California beach town and in desperate post-disaster, steamy hot, perfume-scented Indonesia.The contrast in weather almost as extreme as the contrast in lifestyles and create the backdrop for Sienna and Deni’s and Spider’s story.
I’ve always loved a good travel romance. Gayle Forman’s JUST ONE DAY series is my favorite YA, and though it’s not a “romance” (war time desperation) another favorite desperate location romance is HOW I LIVE NOW. WHERE I FOUND YOU heats up in outside Yogykarta, on the back of a motorcycle, weaving through a temple, and then on a runaway adventure to find Deni’s lost dad. I tried to write Indonesia as much of a character as the human ones. To me, the right setting is essential backdrop to a great love story.
“Of all the gin joints in all the world, you walk into mine.” Casablanca in the present day and Paris in flashbacks? You win. (Kids: if you haven’t seen this classic, do it. It’s 100% Instagram-worthy.)
