I’m Heather. I was born and raised in Southern California, but can’t admit this without insisting I spent a chunk of my teens in Colorado Springs. After leaving high school at sixteen, I earned my BA from Colorado College. I currently live 200 miles south of the Arctic Circle in Interior Alaska, where I’ve found a passion for teaching college composition and a love for a -20F winter day. In addition to being an MFA student at the University of Alaska-Fairbanks, I work as an editor, book coach, tutor, and copywriter. I love wandering out into the forest, practicing sloppy ballet in my apartment, pining for the Pacific Northwest, watching horror movies, and writing. I’m represented by Sarah Davies of Greenhouse Literary Agency.
