COME THE MORNING is an historical reissue (the first book in the Graham Series originally written under Heather’s pen name, Shannon Drake.) Heather’s historicals are a treat to read and her readers will especially  enjoy this book. In the days when Scotland lay under siege, King David sought loyal warriors who would fight with their blood and hearts. Waryk de Graham, the greatest of these fighters, was knighted Lord Lion, but his honored position as Scottish chieftain came with a price: a Viking bride who had sworn to resist him in body and spirit.

Switching from historicals to her current paranormal suspense series, Cafferty & Quinn, Heather’s legion of readers are in for a treat with the release of the latest in this series: THE DEAD PLAY ON. Musicians are being murdered in New Orleans. But Arnie Watson apparently died by his own hand. When Tyler Anderson plays the saxophone he inherited from Arnie, a soldier and musician who died soon after his return, he believes he sees visions of his friend’s life—and death. Read more at

The only tough question is: which book to read first? I, of course, will read them all!

She published her first book in 1976 and is the author of approximately 100 books with sales totalling over 325 million copies across 89 counties and translated in 19 languages. I was not only a fan of her books, particularly the Calder Series, I also had the privilege of meeting her on several occasions but one in particular was memorable. Here’s the article I wrote at the time and it’s about her first boss attending a booksigning!
