My name is Heather Ellen Yamauchi, and I am a self-published author, poet, and literary critic.  I am the owner, editor, and creator of this blog.


I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Anthropology from the University of Maine where I also minored in both Medieval & Renaissance Studies and English.




Genres I enjoy writing include fantasy, historical fiction, and epic tales.  I draw much inspiration from authors like Brandon Sanderson, Celia S. Friedman, George R.R. Martin, and J.R.R. Tolkien.




Some favorites include sunflowers, the color blue, black diamonds, swimming, vampires, musicals, penguins, cats, research, video gaming, books, pizza, pasta, making lists, Netflix marathons, and maps.




Apart from writing furiously, my hobbies include reading, cinema, nature walks, cooking and eating cultural ethnic foods, and spending time with my family and pets.

  1. I just wanted to let you know, I found your site through your link at the NaNoWriMo forums. I look forward to reading through what you’ve written.

    • Thank you so much for your support! I hope to be producing some pieces for the public after NaNo comes to a close! Feel free to send me a message or buddy request on NaNo, I always like to chat with other writers and supporters!

    • I do indeed. I love his writing style. It is immensely impressive to me at how well he can capture the thoughts and minds of a woman main character. That being said, I loved Elantris and the book Warbreaker, which he wrote as an alternative to Elantris.

    • Thank you very much. I have been more active on the facebook page than the blog while preparing for the arrival of my first baby, but do hope to add more content all the time. Thank you for your interest and readership.
