Heather Marie Adkins

Heather Adkins is an independent fiction novelist and avid bibliophile with the library to prove it.

Heather started writing sixteen years ago when she really wanted to be like R.L. Stine. Several never-to-be-seen novels later, she may have changed her mind a bit and started writing whatever she felt was right. To date, she has dabbled in numerous genres including chick lit, historical romance, horror, mystery, and various forms of the paranormal. Her influences include Jennifer Crusie, Laurell K Hamilton, Kim Harrison, and Jim Butcher. She first began publishing her work in June 2011, much to the chagrin of her mother.
She has a black belt in Tae Kwon Do, though all that got her in the end was a shattered pinkie finger that no longer bends. On the bright side, she types faster with nine fingers than most people do with ten. She loves to travel and would give her good pinkie and her soul for a cottage in Ireland where she could write in peace. As it is, she has to fight through a lifetime’s worth of distractions just to write ten sentences. She also enjoys gardening, cooking, and reading when she has time to do so.
