Heather Hayden is a writer, gamer, reader, editor, and computer geek, though not in any specific order.
She can’t remember when she first started tapping away at a keyboard but she’s grateful that those early attempts at writing are lost in the ancient format of floppy disc. She does miss that racing MS-DOS game she used to play, but has found other games to spend free time on, such as Warcraft III and Magic the Gathering, when she has spare free time. A lot of her free time is spent reading her latest haul from the local library.
Heather wrote her first novel when she was fourteen, and published her first book (a different one from the first she wrote…that one may never see the light of day) when she was twenty-one. She is now hard at work on her next publication, a YA fantasy novel. (Her first book was Augment, a YA science fiction novella.)
When she’s not working on her current project, she can be found deep within the pages of a good book or tapping away at the QWES keys (what possessed her to use QWES rather than the normal WASD is a question still unanswered.)
At times Heather ventures outside to hike with friends, go biking, or go swimming. She prefers ocean water over lake water, has a fear of heights, and is currently in search of a new bike (her old one, Cliffjumper, can no longer shift gears, which makes steep hills impossible.)
She also loves anime, listening to music, and chocolate, and finds writing about herself in the third person quite odd.
Heather is currently traveling up her author goal ranks to Fleet Admiral (currently, she is a Lieutenant Junior Grade.) Along the way, she will be sharing what she’s learned, both from her own writing and from the writing of others via book reviews, through this blog.
