I’m Alison Inches, but sometimes I go by Wanda Coven. I’m Wanda when I’m writing about Heidi Heckelbeck. Heidi is the star of a new chapter book series for young readers. Heidi is just like any other 8 year-old. She eats peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for lunch. She hates all vegetables. She picks on her younger brother, Henry. She begrudgingly does her homework. And she’s a witch. A witch? Yup. That’s right. Heidi is a witch in disguise. Heidi will have the same challenges that any 8 year-old would, and she’ll need to find a way to balance her desire to use her powers and her need to fit into her new school.
Heidi debuted in January 2012, followed by two more titles in May 2012. The first two titles are: Heidi Heckelbeck has a Secret by Wanda Coven, illustrated by Priscilla Burris and Heidi Heckelbeck Casts a Spell by Wanda Coven, illustrated by Priscilla Burris.
