Heather Hepler Hepler's new story The Cupcake Queen is a confection of a novel, combining big city sophistication with small town charm. When her mother moves from the city to a small town to open up a cupcake bakery, Penny's new life isn't what she expected. Her father has stayed behind, and Mom isn't talking about what the future holds for their family. And then there's Charity, the girl who plays mean pranks almost daily. There are also bright spots in Hog's Hollow-like Tally, an expert in Rock Paper Scissors, and Marcus, the boy who is always running on the beach. But just when it looks as though Penny is settling in, her parents ask her to make a choice that will turn everything upside down again. A sweet novel about love, creativity, and accepting life's unexpected turns. Hepler grew up in North Texas. She has lived in Reno, on the coast of Maine, in the interior of Alaska, and near Death Valley, but she currently is being held against her will in Tyler. She works as a reviewer for VOYA, Kirkus Reviews, Publishers Weekly, Library Media Connection, and The New York Times. Her writing has also appeared in the Southwest Review and the Cincinnati Review.
