Interview with Heather M. Gardner

Published 2020-03-26.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
In high school I would trade a notebook with a friend and we would take turns writing the epic adventures of two girls that met the members of a rock band and how they fell in love with them and traveled with the band. It was completely cheesy, but awesome, and I loved writing that way.
What are your five favorite books, and why?
I'm going to cheat on this one. I don't think I need to explain why I like these books.
Jurassic Park
The Harry Potter series
The Stephanie Plum series
Most of The Anita Blake series
Most of Nora Robert's books
Karen Marie Moning - Fever series
Stranger in a Strange Land
Till Death Us Do Part
Silence of the Lambs
The Firm
What is your writing process?
I'm a complete 'write by the seat of my pants' kind of gal. I never know where they story will take me and I never know when the writing bug will finally bite.
How do you approach cover design?
Originally I never wanted to sell books with half naked guys on the cover. I've figured out since then that its hard to peddle romance w/o a book looking like a romance.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I have a Kindle Fire that I use the most, but I've been known to use my phone or laptop in a pinch.
