C. L. Heckman


C. L. Heckman, a small-town writer from Pennsylvania, grew up with a love of words. At the age of eight, she wrote her first song lyrics, and put them to a piano melody she had created. At the age of eleven, she began to write poetry, and entered her poems in many competitions around the U.S.

Drifting from writing, she spent nearly twenty years riding and showing Arabian horses, and has multiple Regional Championship titles to her name. However, unable to leave the dream of writing behind, she continued to write any chance she got in the hopes of one day accomplishing her dream.

When a high school history teacher advised her to be a writer, she ignored him, assuming that it was a far-fetched goal. However, almost a decade later, she finally took his advice and has now self-published her first novel, Charlie's Pond.

Heckman, a stay-at-home mom to her beautiful daughter, is currently working on her next novel, as well as a few short stories. She states that when she is old and gray, she will tell her grandchildren about her biggest accomplishments, knowing now, that her books will be one of them.

Smashwords Interview

What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
My 5 year old daughter, and the pitter patter of her little feet on the hardwood floor, is better than any alarm clock.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I like reading books by unknown authors. So many people have such amazing stories, and remarkable gifts that don't get the opportunity to be acknowledged.
