short stories from adventureland

My name is Heather and I write stories both long and short for my sanity and any fine folk out there who want to take a dive into those choppy waters. I live in Seattle and daywalk as a Copywriter because somebody has to bring home that bacon, or in my case that Honey Bunches of Oates.

"You have to surrender to your mediocrity, and just write. Because it’s hard, really hard, to write even a crappy book.
