Adventure Interview With Debut Author Heidi R. Kling

I had a chance to interview the awesome Heidi R. Kling, author of SEA, due out in June. I sent her on an imaginary, international adventure. Enjoy!

You can travel anywhere in the world for one month. Where do you go?

What an awesome question. I think I'd island hop in Greece.

You can bring one book (other than yours) to share with the people there (no language barrier) what do you bring?

The Forest of Hands and Teeth. They may want to prepare for a zombie apocalypse.

While on vacation you meet a medicine man who loves your writing so much that he wants to give you one super power.  What do you ask for?

The power of flight. Hands down!

While on vacation you run into your favorite author.  He/she asks to read your book.  Who is it and what do they say about it?

John Green. He says, "This should totally win the Printz. In fact, I just emailed the committee and told them so!"

You’ve now been away for a month, what do you miss most about home?

My husband, my son, my daughter and my dog.

On the way back your plane’s engines fail and begins to plummet into the ocean!  What are your last words?

I can't believe I'm dying before I win the Printz

Unfortunately you didn’t survive the crash, who do you come back to haunt?

YOU! For making me crash and die. :-)


  1. Whoa, that was awesome. The JG moment is shared by me too, but I don't envy the end of the interview.

  2. Thanks for the feedback! I got a lot of positive feedback about this interview so I've got a few more planned.
