Heather Ewings is a Tasmanian author of short stories. She holds a Masters of Arts 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 1000words.org.uk, and narratorAustralia, 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. These earlier stories are published under the name ‘Heather Jensen’.
Her hobbies include bushwalking, gardening, doing jigsaw puzzles, playing the harp and belly dancing, though with three young children there isn’t quite as much free time to go arounand so the puzzles, and harp and belly dancing have, for the moment at least, fallen by the wayside.
