About Me

My Photo
Well let’s see. I was born during the Blizzard of 1978 in Lima, Ohio. I have lived in Ohio all my life. I like it here. We have corn fields instead of oceans, overpasses instead of mountains and fog instead of smog. Sure it's not the promise land, but sometimes one doesn't need postcard worthy beauty on the outside to have it elsewhere. I'm a writer for fun, a Paralegal for profession, and while one pays the bills, one feeds my imagination, or perhaps my imagination feeds my writing...either way, Writing is as much of who I am as the color of my eyes, or the way that I smile. Blogs are great communication tools, and I'm here to communicate with YOU...yeah, you who's reading this right now....*assuming anyone's out there* *crickets chirp* Alrightee then, IF anyone should find themselves here, be it by accident or on purpose, welcome, glad to have you aboard. Throw anchor, stay awhile! Sunshine & Smiles, ~Heather Lynn~

From the Editor's Desk:

Hello everyone!  My name is Deborah, and I am one of the editors for Dead in a Ditch.  I am somewhat new to the project, but I have been working very hard at getting the manuscript ready for publication.  Publishing a book is something I have dreamed of since I was a little girl, and I could not be more proud to have my name in Dead in a Ditch.  This fictional novel will keep you on your toes, wanting more, as it is not limited to one genre.  Readers will be engulfed in an explicit and mysterious thriller that is also entangled with a passionate love story.  The main character is not only struggling with keeping her existence but is also battling a lust/love for one of her potential killers.   

When asked to be on board, I was given orders from my boss to read the entire book first without editing anything.  That was honestly one of the hardest jobs to do, because I was so urgent to dive in on editing.  Once I finished reading, less than 24 hours later, I was finally able to get started!   Although this process has involved several days and nights of research, hours of phone calls/meetings with the author and other editor, and even talking to myself out loud to verify the sentences are perfect…I have truly enjoyed every  minute of it.  I am thrilled to be a part of the team and cannot wait for publication in December.  What a great way to kick off the holidays, so don’t miss out!
