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.

How To Find Your Magic

Happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone! Do you have your green on? Leprechauns, gold and magic surround this holiday, but as writers we must employ a bit of creative “magic” every day to create characters, worlds and emotionally moving stories.

October Chills & Thrills

The tang of wood smoke hangs in the Autumn-crisp air. Geese honk overhead, and pumpkins are showing up on everyone’s door steps. Halloween is just around the corner, and it brings out my love for chills and thrills. I’m talking about suspense – ghost stories, campy horror flicks, full-moon walks, and romantic suspense books.
