Heather Ewings is a Tasmanian author of short stories. She holds a MA in Modern History and is currently working on her second novel while she awaits feedback on her first.

Heather’s short stories have been published in many different places around the web, including Asymmetry Fiction (upcoming), 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 a excessively cheerful 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 religiously, before children.

    • I can – but I have hardly touched it since the kids were born. I really should practice more often. That’s not a bad idea for a story either 🙂

  1. I love harp music. One of my favourite writing CD’s is by Loreena McKennitt. She plays the harp in most of her songs. The CD has a magical, Celtic quality to it. Love it! Never fails to get the writing brain moving.

    • Hi Laverne – I love Loreena McKennitt too – she was the reason I wanted to play in the first place! 🙂 Which Album do you have? One of my favourite pieces of hers is La Serenissima, and I actually have the sheet music to play it. Beautiful!! 🙂

      • Oh my goodness! You have the sheet music! How cool! I’ve ripped the album “The Visit” to my computer and have that along with the rock band, Muse on random – oh – and the soundtrack from the movie, “City of Angels”. Wonderful music that gives a different feel and helps get my muse going! I did have another album of Loreena’s but have lost it ad can’t remember what it was called. All I do know is that I’m still in mourning for it! Will have to go and buy more of hers.

      • I love The Visit! My favourite though is Book of Secrets – it has Dante’s Prayer, and The Highwayman, which are my other favourites of hers. I also have ‘An Ancient Muse’ which has some good music on it too.
