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.
