Heather Holland Wheaton wrote her first book, Tales of Wheaton Manor in Mrs. Longley’s 4th grade social studies class. It told the fictional saga of her family’s life in feudal England. The book won critical acclaim (and an A+) from Mrs. Longley and was displayed on the classroom bulletin board.

Since then, Heather has gone on to a myriad of other writing projects—including her short fiction collections You Are HereEight Million Stories in a New York Minute and Wet Paint and of course, her ever-popular annual Heartwarming Holiday Stories.

Her work has also appeared in Curbside Splendor, Black Heart Magazine, Slipstream, The Morning News, PIM and Every Day Fiction. Her short story, "When the Devil Came to Hell's Kitchen" was included in Hell's Garden: Mad, Bad and Ghostly Gardeners. Her most recent short story, "I Wrote My Name on the Back of the Sky" was published in the Escape issue of Shooter Literary Magazine and was nominated for a Pushcart Prize.

Heather lives in Manhattan and will never leave.
