My name is Heather McNamara

I used to blog about political things, but I got tired of repeating myself.  I’ve moved on to my life-long passion: literature.  After several years of not finishing things, I finally completed the first draft of a novel.  I’m now ready to learn everything that I can about honing my craft, editing, and publishing.

Everywhere I look, I see that the only way to get published these days, or failing that, promote a self-published book, is to develop an online platform.  Well, I don’t want to be the ten-thousandth author with a blog about the difference between your and you’re, or the twenty-thousandth author with a blog about how to get agents to look at your query letter.  I don’t know anything about that yet anyway.  I want to see what other people have done with their craft.  I want to read, review, and learn from them.  So if that’s you, get in touch.

As for me, I’m a lesbian mom partnered with the lovely supergenius Zinnia Jones.  My kids are hilarious and brilliant, but I can still outsmart them for now.  I enjoy writing, reading, procrastinating, and incomprehensible art films.  I have a boring day job where I go to eat a lot of Tums.  I’m finishing my degree in English with a focus on technical writing with a minor in writing and rhetoric at University of Central Florida.

Nice to meet you.
