Meet the 2019 Cybils Team: Heidi Fielder, Easy Reader and Early Chapter Book Chair

Writer and editor Heidi Fiedler has worked on more than 300 books for clients ranging from Target to Barnes & Noble. She does the deep thinking that’s needed to turn an idea into a book that delights and inspires. Whether it’s a poetic picture book, a zippy chapter book, or a kid-friendly take on the physics of time travel, the books she works on are quirky, playful, highly visual, and often philosophical. She also teaches classes on writing and editing. Learn more about Heidi and the work she does at
