H.M. Barone


My name is Heather Barone. I'm a single mother of two girls. I've always loved writing, art and photography. I started writing a series nearly ten years ago but it didn't completely survive our move, five years ago. After the loss of so much hard work, I decided to write something that was more in tune with my personal beliefs as well as with the adventures I wanted to have. I've always believed that anything a man can do, a woman can do too. That was when I created the characters in my current series.

I earn a paycheck at the local ice cream factory, as a janitor. This affords me the free time to write and research for my books. Some of the people I work with may even find bits of themselves scattered in the pages.

I am a born again believer in Jesus Christ. I do my best to reflect biblical beliefs in my stories as well. I'm not perfect, nor are my characters. I hope you fall in love with them, nonetheless, the same way I have.

Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
The first story I ever wrote, I didn't finish. It was a Christmas play for our youth group to perform. It was when I was thirteen-ish and the only part I can remember was that there were angels watching two little girls.
What is your writing process?
I take a new composition notebook and write down my idea. From there, I create the world, characters and events. If I think it's a worthwhile idea, I carry the notebook around with me and continue to work on it until it is book worthy. After that, I commit it to the computer and flesh it out.
