The Real Bio:
Heather Lire has been telling stories her entire life. In the second grade her parents received a note from her teacher telling them she needed to stay on task and not tell the other students stories. She wrote her first story in the third grade, complete with illustrations. While she can’t completely remember the name or the plot of the story it had something to do with travel and possibly aliens. She does know that it is somewhere in her box of keepsakes.
She met her husband on a blind date and married him four months later. On their second anniversary they brought home two baby boys from the foster care system. Their adoption was finalized ten months later.
Heather has a B.A. in Foreign Languages and Literature from the University of New Mexico and an M.S. in Educ from Walden University. She teaches Spanish in an inner city/urban school in Colorado.
On the encouragement of some friends she decided to resurrect her dream of writing stories and sat down at her computer. She wrote her first complete novel in 3 weeks, and hasn’t stopped since. She freely admits she’s caught the writing bug and would love nothing more than to hole up in a room with her laptop, an unlimited supply of chips and salsa, veggies with spicy red pepper hummus, and iced tea. However, her husband and sons would likely object.
Heather is represented by Nicole Resciniti at The Seymour Agency.
