Under the Heather Books is dedicated to recognizing and promoting women and authors of color, although I do occasionally read books by white males. These authors deserve not only to be recognized, but to have a place of their own, where they and their readers can come and find exciting reads from diverse perspectives. I also love featuring work by trans authors and authors writing with an LGBTQ perspective. I’m a feminist, and I read like one, so bring on the complex, flawed, strong, honest, incredible female authors and characters that I know are out there diving for the spotlight!
Writing book reviews keeps me honest. It gives me a chance to distill the swirl of ideas that swarm my brain after I turn the last page of a novel. And hopefully, it helps YOU decide which books are worth reading, so that you too can find books that loose your wild soul!
