It’s really not hard to appreciate an author who has written two novels like ‘Seed’ and ‘Paper Butterflies’. Apparently we enjoy being tense, heart-broken and completely unable to put a book down. But Lisa Heathfield isn’t just an incredibly powerful writer, she’s also a lovely lady.
Firstly, she has supremely good taste in books:
.@FrancesHardinge is a stunning writer – I've just finished THE LIE TREE and can't wait to get my teeth into CUCKOO SONG.

We’re rather relieved that even successful authors get all tongue-tied about the books they love, too:
Finding it difficult to express quite how brilliant LITTLE BITS OF SKY is. Uplifting, heartbreaking. @SEDurrant is an astonishing talent.

The thought of nine-year-old writing on a typewriter is just plain CUTE:
My nine-year-old self, tapping away on her type writer, can't quite believe this..! https://t.co/P5KJmlh75s
