Heidi writes stories that she hopes will inspire her readers to take their hearts on one more adventure.
She still lives in the Black Hills with her alarmingly handsome husband, their fearless child, and a rather large and spoiled dog.
She is fueled by her unwavering and perfectly normal devotion to Dave Grohl and coffee.
And a whole lotta love.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Coffee. Coffee inspires me to get out of bed.
But really, early morning sunshine is the best for writing.
What's the story behind your latest book?
Sushi and Sun Salutations started out with a little bit of real life at its core. When I was in high school, I wrote desk poetry with someone I never met. We would create and complete each other's poems and never exchanged personal information. I still wonder who they were and where they ended up. I suppose writing this story was my way of paying homage to that person. Also, the idea of falling in love with an anonymous poet was such a fantastic idea, I couldn't pass it up.
