Heather’s desire to become an author hit in 8th grade when she wrote a short story as an assignment and she turned that story into her first novel. She graduated college with a degree in English and a minor in Creative Writing, but after college she got discouraged and writing fell by the wayside for other hobbies, though she still dreamed of publishing one day.
She began reading YA fiction again in 2015, and her heart burned to start writing the stories in her head. It was then that she began The Weregal Chronicles, a YA paranormal romance series featuring tiger shifters. The setting of “Perfect Scents”, Book 1 is in West Virginia, a place Heather holds dear to her heart. Though she only lived there for a year, she will always consider it home.
Currently, Heather and her dog, Gunney, live in Wisconsin. He’s a Pomeranian who loves to keep her company while she writes, and if she gets too distracted by her writing, he likes to remind her that he’s still present. He’s recently learned to love to play fetch, so it’s their favorite distraction when she needs a break…or he does.
