All About hmccollum

Heather McCollum is an award winning, historical paranormal romance writer. She earned her B.A. in Biology from the University of Maine, much to her English professor’s dismay. She is a member of Romance Writers of America, Heart of Carolina Romance Writers and the Ruby Slipper Sisterhood of 2009 Golden Heart Finalists.
The ancient magic and lush beauty of Great Britain entranced Ms. McCollum’s heart and imagination when she visited there years ago. The country’s history and landscape have been a backdrop for her writing ever since. She currently resides with her very own Highland hero and three spirited children in the wilds of suburbia on the mid-Atlantic coast.

Hello! So…what’s on your mind? Considering that the brain generates 50,000 – 70,000 thoughts per day (or 35-48 thoughts per minute), I’m betting there’s quite a bit crossing through your mind right now. Whew, that’s a lot of mental traffic! And yet, we are constantly trying to focus. Whether it is creating a strategy to […]
