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.

Happy Fangirl Friday!

Yay! It’s the weekend! With it warming up, my thoughts start to drift toward sitting on the beach or by the lake or at the pool. And in all three daydreams I’m reading, of course.   This week Ruby Sister, Kim Law, has three great beach reads (or lake/pool reads) on sale for $0.99 each! […]

Prom – the Perfect Venue for Drama

Do you remember prom? I attended three during my high school years in the 80’s. Big hair, voluminous shoulders, and Stairway to Heaven slow dancing. Now I’m all grown up (sort of) and have a darling daughter (DD) who went to prom this past weekend. Some things have changed while other prom rituals have stood […]

Fangirl Friday the 13th!

Happy Fangirl Friday! ChChChAhAhAh…. Yes it is also Friday the 13th – eeks! We all better stay inside and read fabulous books instead of venturing into the woods. Actually my daughter is camping – at a lake – starting tonight! But it’s okay because she’s only 9, and as long as the dads chaperoning her “tribe” […]

Stop the (Negative) Insanity!

Happy Monday everyone! Okay, so you may not feel like celebrating the start of the work week, but I bet you can find something to smile about if you look. Perhaps the traffic lights were green or a butterfly landed on your arm. These might seem like little things, but they’re important. Often times we […]

Quick! Write a Book!

Today is a momentous day for me! SACRIFICE, the fifth and final book in my paranormal romance series, The Dragonfly Chronicles, has released!   Amen! The first book in the series, PROPHECY, came out in 2009. Ugh! Really? So I had some hang-ups in the last seven years, which delayed each book: three busy kids, taking […]

Green Sparkly Magic

Do you know what is special about tomorrow? It’s a day of magic! Leprechaun magic! Tomorrow is St. Patrick’s Day. And although this holiday is anchored in Ireland, many people off the green isle celebrate the magic of this fun day. Even though I have reddish hair and some freckles, and my dad looks like […]

Writing=Weight Loss? Using Writing Strategies to Lose Weight

I’m a writer, and like many people who sit for long periods of time, my health and weight were not where they should be. Five years ago I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer, which somersaulted me into a world of surgery, bedrest, instant menopause, chemo, and steroids. This all added up to a weight gain […]
