FAQ Category: About Heather

What books have influenced your life?

Harlequin romance novels because my grandmother read them to me. Science fiction and fantasy for daring me to dream. Comic book for telling me anyone can be a hero and every other take that involves a “the end” because it said I could do it

Plotter or Panster or a combination of both?

I’ve done both and these days I’m somewhere in between. I always have a rough outline in mind when I start, I know the major events that have to happen and then I let the story unfold – sometimes that means deviating from the original plan, but eventually it works out.

Where do you get your inspiration?

I get my inspiration everywhere. It can be a line of dialogue in a television show, a joke shared between friends or just something I see while driving my car. Everything has a meaning to me and everything has a story.

Do real life events find their way into your stories?

Yes and no. Some real life events can and do influence what I write. Whether it’s noticing they’ve cut down an entire greenbelt’s worth of forest or the news is reporting what happened to a Marine unit overseas or even here at home.
