Short story writers: Heather Haynes

Heather has been scribbling for as long as she can remember, first making it into print at the age of seven … with a dreadful adjective-rich story about smugglers. Most of her stories since then have gathered dust in a battered blue folder. However, over the years while working as an editor, proof reader, English teacher and exam marker, she has managed to write a couple of non-fiction books and ghosted a few more, in addition to contributing to several English Language textbooks.

But it is fiction that is her first love, and making it to runner-up in the Swanwick Short Story Competition in 2008 has spurred her on to write more. Much of her fiction features slices of life, for example a seduction in a hairdessing salon, a dysfunctional family get-together, or a fit of hysterics in a smart restaurant. At present she is penning her first children’s fiction book about a kleptomaniac and a resentful stepson set in a seaside fish and chip shop somewhere in England. Watch this space.
