Luna’s Reading Corner podcast

June 8th, 2016

A big shout out and thank you to New Moon Girls for featuring me on their latest “Luna’s Reading Corner” podcast! And to fabulous host Lacey Louwagie and fabulous young interviewer Zoe — I had a great time talking with you both about the Mother-Daughter Book Club series, about writing, and about life!

Saturday Story Starter

May 28th, 2016

Howdy, fellow writers!

It’s high time for a new story starter, wouldn’t you say? How about we kick off Memorial Day weekend with a new one?

For those of you who haven’t participated before, Saturday Story Starter is purely for fun, just a way to exercise those writing muscles (think of it as Heather’s Literary Gym). There are no prizes, only the simple joy of putting words on paper (well, OK, on the computer screen). Also, I won’t be offering critiques, just brief words of encouragement, but I will read all your entries, that I can promise! (And if you’d like to read some of the earlier stories that have been shared, click here and click here and click here and here and click here and here and click here and here and here and here and here and here and here and here and here and here and here to browse to your heart’s content…)

Let’s get started, shall we?


Now this is intriguing, isn’t it? Someone took a lot of time and put a lot of effort into gathering the elements for this sign and then putting it together. Who do you think did it? Who do you think were they hoping would read it? Was it ever discovered and read? What happened then?

You’re the writer, so these decisions are yours to make. Set the scene and tell us a story…

Ready, set, WRITE!

CANADA and CONCORD, here I come!

April 19th, 2016

I’m thrilled to announce two upcoming bookstore appearances, in two of my very favorite places!

To help celebrate the launch of MOTHER-DAUGHTER BOOK CAMP, the seventh and final (sniff) book in my Mother-Daughter Book Club series, I’ll be heading first to Vancouver, British Columbia (yep, that’s right, my first appearance in CANADA!), and then on to Concord, Massachusetts, the town that started it all (the books are set in my old hometown, in case you didn’t know — talk about bringing it full circle…).

If you’re in either area, I’d love to see you! Please come join me on Monday, May 2, at 7 pm at Kidsbooks in Vancouver or Sunday, May 22nd at 3 pm at The Concord Bookshop in Concord (full details on both events here).

Warning: there may be dorky pictures of me at summer camp involved…
