297 – Experience a Holiday Story and Peek into the Life of Bestselling Author Heidi Swain
Get into the holiday spirit with today's light-hearted episode. Enjoy a reading from a special holiday story by Heidi Swain (revolving around a small-town craft market), who also shares her journey to becoming a best-selling author.
Although passionate about writing from an early age, Heidi acquired a degree in literature, flirted briefly with a newspaper career, married, and had two children before she plucked up the courage to join a creative writing class and take her literary ambitions seriously.
A lover of vintage paraphernalia and the odd bottle of fizz, she now writes feel-good fiction with heart for Simon and Schuster.
Her debut novel, The Cherry Tree Café was published in July 2015 and since then she has had a further ten books published, becoming a Sunday Times Bestseller in 2017.
Heidi is currently celebrating the release of her 2020 festive title, The Winter Garden.
