Heather and I did a creative season and a manuscript review together, and I have to say: best two decisions I've made in my writing life. Rather than shoving me into a program, Heather customized our conversations and the homework from them to actually get to the bottom of what I was feeling and experiencing, and figure out how to get me where I want to go creatively, professionally, and even spiritually. When it came time for my manuscript review, I knew my work was in good hands and that Heather would pull no punches in helping me make it the best it could possibly be -- all in the spirit of being a friend, adviser, and advocate. Mission accomplished. She's a really positive but down-to-earth force who I'll no doubt be turning to and returning to for years. If you're thinking, "hmm, I would like to work with Heather," do it. Seriously.
