When she’s not traipsing around the world or spending time in imaginary places, Heather Demetrios lives with her husband and rescue mutt in New York City. Originally from Los Angeles, she now calls the East Coast home. Heather has an MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults from Vermont College of Fine Arts and is a recipient of the PEN New England Susan P. Bloom Discovery Award for her debut novel, Something Real. Her other novels include Exquisite Captive, the first in a fantasy series, I’ll Meet You There, and the multiplatform serial novel, The Lexie Project. She is the founder of Live Your What, a project dedicated to creating writing opportunities for underserved youth. A self-proclaimed hopeless romantic, Heather’s never met a kissing scene she didn’t like—but always knows a way to make it better.
