Heather McCoubrey


Heather McCoubrey is a native of Maine but having moved all over the U.S. as a child, she doesn’t sound like one. She’s been writing since middle school when a teacher taught her she could create her own stories instead of just reading them. That year she had some of her first poems published in the school magazine and from there she graduated to writing a full-length novel in high school (which has been collecting dust on her shelf ever since!).

She is the self-published author of To Love Twice and Back to December. The novel that’s been collecting dust on the shelf, Emily’s Choice, was published in March 2016. She is currently working on her fourth and fifth novels, scheduled for release in late 2016.

Heather resides in Pennsylvania with her husband, two children, Rex the chihuahua, Psycho Killer the cat, and Fatty the goldfish. When she’s not being super-mom and wife, she ekes out time to write, watch football, practice her British accent and dream of living on an island where it’s eighty degrees year-round.

Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I first started writing when I was 13. I was in 7th grade and had an amazing teacher who showed me the talent I had. She signed me up for a creative writing class and the rest is history. I started out writing poems and short stories and published a few of them to the school magazine. During my senior year of high school I wrote my first novel. It's been through 6-7 rewrites and I'm not sure it'll ever get finished.
What's the story behind your latest book?
Honestly, the idea for this book came a bit from watching the movie Love Actually! My initial idea was to have a woman, on the verge of getting married, suddenly get cold feet and fly off to London. But once I sat down to write it, it certainly didn't work out that way. I love the story of Kate. She's been through almost everything and she comes through it brilliantly. I wanted readers to see that no matter how bad things get, a happy-ever-after is possible. To Love Twice does that.
