Heidi Stephens

Heidi Stephens is an exciting new contemporary fiction author. Her stunning debut novel, Two Metres From You (Headline) - a story about romance, village life, and mandatory dog exercise - won the 2022 Katie Fforde Debut Romantic Novel Award.

Heidi's fifth book Same Time Next Year (Headline, February 2024) is a hilarious, heart-warming and joyful novel about love, life, hope, family and the importance of taking chances. Sisters Bel and Marie are as different from each other as can be. Forced to spend a year together renovating the family’s rundown house on the Norfolk coast, with the help of an eclectic group of friends, can old wounds be healed and romance blossom?

Heidi writes The Guardian’s wildly successful Strictly liveblog and regularly appears on Breakfast TV to talk about Strictly. Lockdown gave her the opportunity to fulfil her lifetime ambition of writing a novel. In her career she has worked as a freelance journalist and in advertising and marketing; some of her early writing work includes instruction manuals for vacuum cleaners, saucepans and sex toys. She lives in Wiltshire with her partner and their Labrador, Mabel.
