Welcome! I’m Heather Shaw, writer, editor, mom, aikidoka, gardener, crafty person and cat-owner. But this page is mostly about me being a writer.

I have written lots of short stories, and even have had some of them published in nice places such as the Year’s Best Fantasy, Strange Horizons and Polyphony. You can check out my bibliography for a list of my publication, with links to those available for free online. My most popular story to date is “Single White Farmhouse” which is online in podcast form over at Escape Pod.

Lately, though, I’ve been working on novels. I’m in the final throes of editing a middle grade novel called, at the moment, Keaton T., Junior Gene Hacker which we’ll call a science fantasy. I’ve attended the Blue Heaven Novel Writing Workshop twice now, and am a much better novelist because of all the great advice and crits I received there.

I have an online journal, which I neglect too often. I’m far more active over at Twitter, and I occasionally do photoset on Flickr though it’s mostly of my son, River, and the occasional con.

If you’d like to get in touch, you can email me.

    My very first fan letter-I heard your story “Little M@tch Girl” on Escapepod today and was blown away. A beautiful and terrifying story, well paced, great lingo and background. That you could feel the tragedy coming only made it hurt more when it arrived.

    A truly great story-thank you for sharing it.
