This week’s Bloom host is Heather Webb. Heather Webb is the international bestselling and award-winning author of historical fiction. Most of you have met her before on Bloom or in the wilds of the internet (or bookstores, yay!), but for those who don’t know her, her most recent novels include Last Christmas in Paris: A Novel of WWI and The Phantom’s Apprentice, a gothic retelling of Phantom of the Opera from Christine Daae’s point of view. Up and coming, her novel co-written with Hazel Gaynor, called MEET ME IN MONACO, is set to the backdrop of Grace Kelly’s fairy tale wedding when a British press photographer and a French perfumer meet Grace and their lives become inexorably linked. It releases next July!
Heather enjoys travel, believes in magic, reads Tarot cards, and can spend endless hours in her kitchen experimenting. Shenanigans is her favorite word, and she tries to be mixed up in them whenever possible. She’s also a beach lover and wishes she lived in a hut beside the waves.
Heather Webb is the international bestselling author of historical novels Becoming Josephine, Rodin’s Lover, Last Christmas in Paris, and The Phantom’s Apprentice, which have been featured in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Entertainment Weekly and more, as well as received national starred reviews. In 2015, Rodin’s Lover was selected as a Goodreads Top Pick, and in 2017, Last Christmas in Paris became a Globe & Mail bestseller and was also shortlisted for the Women’s Fiction Writers Association Star Award. Look for her up and coming novel Meet Me in Monaco, set to the backdrop of Grace Kelly’s wedding, releasing in summer 2019. When not writing, you may find Heather collecting cookbooks or looking for excuses to travel. She lives in New England with her family and one feisty rabbit.
