About

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!

  1. Thank you for your nice book review on Amazon of my book Across the Mekong River. I do appreciate it and I’m glad you enjoyed it. I would just mention that all of the story line, though fiction, is taken from the real life stories of Hmong I either met and interviewed or read about in nonfiction books. I’m very happy to find your site and see a number of books that I love on your home page: Cold Sassy Tree, Th e Nightingale and others. I will follow your reviews. All my best,, Elaine Russell

    • Thank you so much for clearing that up! I’ll update my review to reflect what you’ve told me. I admire the way you made those stories come to life. And thank you for your interest in my blog!
