writing. It didn’t matter what implement found its way into her hand—pencil, pen, or crayon (red and green were her favorites)—she rewrote all her favorite stories by scribbling her (often unintelligible) words over the printed pages of her picture books. Thankfully, her technique has improved, and she currently writes historical western, snarky fantasy, and paranormal romance. Her stories make you laugh, groan, or cry along with her characters.

Heidi graduated with a BA in Science, English emphasis, from the University of Central Oklahoma with two minors in Business Administration and History. She also has an Associates in Art degree from Rose State Community College. Her writing includes: Mail-Order Brides of the Southwest 6-book series, Western Trails 3-book series, book #16 in the American Mail-Order Brides series, a 50-book, 50-author series, and a short-stories holiday romance box set, 6 stories in five genres. A World War II romance with paranormal elements is soon to be released as well as a fantasy-paranormal romance series.

Born and raised in Oklahoma, Heidi grew up learning about Indian Territory. But it wasn’t until after several people she knew commented about all Native American men wearing loincloths and all tribes living in teepees that she wrote Trail of Hope, the first book in her Western Trails series. Her books in this series strive to explain the differences between tribes and how they really lived. The Native cultures are diverse and truly wonderful to read about and experience firsthand.

Heidi currently lives in Central Oklahoma with her husband and youngest son.
