Heather Ewings lives and writes on the land of the Pallittorre people of Northern Tasmania. She is a Tasmanian author with a MA in Modern History and a particular interest in Tasmanian colonial times, as well as the much older stories that fall into the category of myth or folktale.
Heather’s short stories have been published in many different places around the web, including Asymmetry Fiction, and narratorInternational, and have been included in the anthologies: ‘Independent Author Index’s Short Story Compilation Vol 3’, and ‘Insignia Vol 1: Japanese Fantasy Stories’. Her work has also received awards: both ‘Ermaline’s Feast’ and ‘Sanctuary’ received an honorary mention in the now defunct, Five Stop Story competition, in April and June 2011 respectively. Her flash fiction piece, ‘Saviour’ was shortlisted for the 2012 Ink Tears Flash Fiction Competition.
Heather writes mostly in the stolen moments between homeschooling two primary aged children and running after an active toddler. When she’s not doing any of the above she’s reading, or helping her husband make beeswax candles, or trying her hand at growing vegetables (with varying degrees of success). On the rarest of occasions she pulls out the 26 string folk harp she used to play regularly before children.
