Heidi Noroozy




Heidi writes multicultural fiction inspired by the places she has visited around the world. As a student in Leipzig, GDR, she sampled Hungarian wine at the Auerbachs Keller, where Johann Wolfgang von Goethe set scenes from his tragic play, Faust. While living in Switzerland, she biked around her family’s Bürgerort (ancestral village), explored the Jura Mountains near Neuchâtel, and never passed up an opportunity to taste real Swiss fondue. These days, Heidi regularly travels to Iran, where she has pondered the ancient past amid the ruins of Persepolis, baked translucent flat bread with Kurdish women in the Zagros Mountains, dipped her toes in the azure waters of the Caspian Sea, and observed the dichotomy of a publicly religious yet privately modern culture.

Heidi's short stories have been translated into German, French, Polish, Estonian and Slovenian. Her short mystery, Trading Places, was published in the "Secret Codes" issue of Nautilus magazine in October 2013. Set in Cold War East Germany, it features a disillusioned policeman on the trail of a graffiti artist whose cryptic political messages threaten to spark public unrest. You can read it here.

A native of New England, Heidi currently resides with her Iranian-born husband in Northern California. She is a member of Sisters in Crime, the Short Mystery Fiction Society, and the International Association of Crime Writers.
