Heather Kaczynski

Contemporary Young Adult Science Fiction

How They Came to Us

Heather emailed Kristin her query letter. Probably one of at least hundred we received that day. Writers, it actually does happen that way. Kristin was immediately intrigued by the idea of a girl competing to win an astronaut slot rather than to win a prince or a kingdom. She read the entire novel on a plane ride back from the Galapagos and offered rep the next day when back in the United States.


Heather never got to go to Space Camp, so she had to settle for writing about it. After graduating cum laude with a degree in biology, she returned to her first love of books, and now works in a library near NASA. She lives with her husband, their daughter, and way too many books. She’s not nearly brave enough to go into space, but she did twirl a fire baton in high school.
