Christine Heppermann

Christine Heppermann currently lives in New York; graduated from Trinity University in San Antonio, hold a Master’s Degree in children’s literature from Simmons College as well as a MFA in writing for children and young adults from Hamline University. She is also a reviewer of young adult books for the Chicago Tribune.


Poisoned Apples: Poems for You, My Pretty is written for young readers. Her poems are where fairy tales and reality intersect. According to Heppermann, “when you think of the apple the wicked queen offers Snow White, it looks wholesome and nutrition but it is actually deadly. The same can be said of the cultural messages directed at women and girls.” E. Lockhart has called Poison Apples: Poems for you My Pretty a bloody poetic attack on the beauty myth that’s caustic, funny and heartbreaking.”


“A slim volume sharp as knives….Full of razors that cut- and

razors to cut off shackles: a must.”
