Welcome! My site is currently under construction as I navigate the features and decide what works for me (and you!)
Here is where I’m supposed to put a few paragraphs about me that appears to be written by someone else.
Really? Everyone knows most of the time the author themselves write them 🙂
I don’t know about them, but it’s akin to torture for me. What is it that readers want to know about an author?
I’ve been known to be psychic so I should know, right?
Oh, look! There. I’ve told you something about me.
The easy stuff is I live in Texas with an amazing woman I’ve been with for over fourteen years and we share our house with four dogs.
It all sounds pretty vanilla.
Wouldn’t it be more exciting to say I live in a haunted Victorian house overlooking the ocean? Where we take early morning walks on the sand, I spend the afternoons writing in the turret, and we sip wine and watch the gorgeous sunsets from our deck over the rolling waves?
Wouldn’t that be fabulous?
Since I don’t, I’ll throw a couple of fun facts in here.
I was born in the Haight-Ashbury district in San Francisco in the early sixties during the hippie revolution and we lived in the same apartment building as Jimi Hendrix.
But, not at the same time.
If none of this works for you, we could go back to the small snippet bio that I wrote:
“No one is more surprised about being an award winning author than Yvonne Heidt herself.
Her debut novel, Sometime Yesterday, won the 2013 Golden Crown Literary Award for Best Paranormal Romance in addition to being a finalist in the 2013 Lambda Literary Awards, and placing in the 2013 Rainbow awards.
The Awakening: Book One in the Sisters of Spirits Trilogy, also won the 2014 Golden Crown Literary award for Best Paranormal. The Quickening: Book Two was a GCLS finalist in 2015, and The Deadening: Book Three in the SOS series won the 2016 Golden Crown Literary Award for Best Paranormal.
While growing up, her mother constantly asked her, “Where do you come UP with this stuff, Yvonne?”
The answer was, and is — always the same.
“I don’t know. I just make it up as I go along.”
Or my favorite: “Yvonne Heidt lives in her own little world that she’s named Vonnie-Land. She considers herself to be a charismatic Libra Goddess.”
