After a decade practicing law and another decade raising kids, Heather decided to finally write the novel she’d always talked about writing. She holds an MFA from the Bennington Writing Seminars, which helped her stop writing like a lawyer. She lives in Mill Valley, California, with her husband and two teenaged children, where she hikes, bikes, neglects potted plants, and reads books by other people that she wishes she’d written. She loves talking to book clubs, in the Bay Area or elsewhere via Skype. Email her at heather_young@me.com if you'd like to schedule a visit!

The good Professor Bauer could never satisfy my fiery idol Jo, and there's no way Laurie could ever be happy with flighty Amy. Between that and the fate of poor Beth, Louisa left wounds on my heart that will never heal. (less)

“How terrible to die without finishing a book, she thought. Never to know the end of the story.”
Heather Young, The Lost Girls

“How terrible to die without finishing a book, she thought.”
Heather Young, The Lost Girls

“They were her family. The family she'd brushed against as a girl and forgotten, the family whose legacy she'd planned to take with her now, in photographs & books & brass-faced clocks. As if legacies lay in things that could be bought & sold. As if families could be left behind or taken with you as you chose.”
Heather Young, The Lost Girls
