Heidi Catherine is an award-winning fantasy author and hopeless romantic.

Her debut novel, The Soulweaver, won Romance Writers of Australia's Emerald Pro award and includes two more books in the series. This was followed up by Heidi's epic fantasy series, The Kingdoms of Evernow, which is currently a finalist in the Australian Romance Readers's Association awards. Her new young adult dystopian series, After the Thaw, has been co-written with USA Today best-selling author, Tamar Sloan.

After being named as a highly commended author in The Hope Prize, Heidi's story, The Extra Piece, was published by Simon & Schuster in a collection of stories about disadvantage in our community. She was also a finalist in Romance Writers of Australia’s Little Gems competition four times.

When not living in her fantasy worlds, Heidi enjoys teaching marketing and public relations for an online university. She lives in Melbourne, Australia, with her husband, two sons and two dogs, and believes the truth should never get in the way of a good story.
