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 Kaczynski is the author of Dare Mighty Things and the sequel, One Giant Leap. She holds a degree in biology from the University of Alabama in Huntsville, and spent seven years working in an Army library near Marshall Space Flight Center, where she managed the children and young adult collections. She lives outside of Huntsville, Alabama, with her husband, their young daughter, and two cats named after Greek myths.
