Hepworth worked in both event management and Human Resources prior to her career as a writer.[5] While on maternity leave with her first child, Hepworth wrote Love Like the French, a novel about a British woman who goes to France after an accident leaves her husband in a coma.[6] The character goes to France to see what the French could teach her about living.[6] Hepworth was unable to finish the book immediately after her son Oscar was born, but the book was eventually published in Germany in 2014.[5]

Hepworth released a second book, The Secrets of Midwives, that she wrote while pregnant with her second child. The book was released in 2015 and is a novel about three generations of midwives.[5] Her research for the book came from her own questioning of midwives during check-ups and reading fiction and nonfiction books on the subject.[5] KJ Dell’Antonia from The New York Times called it a “fast and fun read,” with other reviews of the book coming by way of Publishers Weekly, The Sydney Morning Herald, and Kirkus Reviews.[7][8][9]

Hepworth has continued to release a novel every year, including The Things We Keep in 2016,[10]The Mother’s Promise in 2017[11] and The Family Next Door in 2018.[12]The Family Next Door was Hepworth’s first novel set in her hometown of Melbourne, Australia, a trend she has continued in her 2019 novel The Mother-in-Law.[13]
