Heather Tomlinson

Heather is the author of The Swan Maiden (Henry Holt/Holtzbrinck Group, Summer 2007)


headshot_htomlinson.jpgHeather Tomlinson grew up in California and New Hampshire, graduating from Wellesley College with a degree in French literature. After teaching English in Paris, and French in the US, she worked at a book wholesaler and now writes the kinds of novels she likes to read.

The Swan Maiden was inspired by French fairy tales and the magical countryside of Provence, where ruined castles await discovery and wild herbs perfume the hills.

Heather lives in southern California with her engineer husband and cats X, Y, and Z. When not writing, she’s sailing, quilting, or scheming to get back to France.

Book: The Swan Maiden
cover_swanmaiden.jpgIn the quiet hour before dawn …

Anything can happen. A third daughter can dream of being a creature of flight and magic, of wearing a swan-skin like her sisters. But Doucette is only a chastelaine in training, learning to run the castle household while her older sisters are taught to weave spells. For Doucette, the dream of flying is exactly that-until the day she discovers her own hidden birthright.

Sudden, soaring freedom; it is a wish come true. Yet not even magic can protect against every danger, especially where the heart is involved. As she struggles to find her own way in the world, Doucette risks losing the one she loves most of all.

Coming soon.
