Heidi Cullinan has always loved a good love story, provided it has a happy ending. She enjoys writing across many genres but loves above all to write happy, romantic endings for LGBT characters because there just aren't enough of those stories out there. When Heidi isn't writing, she enjoys cooking, reading, knitting, listening to music, and watching television with her family. Heidi also volunteers frequently for her state's LGBT rights group, One Iowa, and is proud to be from the first midwestern state to legalize same-sex marriage.

Heidi Cullinan is currently not accepting new questions.

Sam and Randy give a book rec (Gay & Lesbian)
1 chapters   —   updated Aug 05, 2010 06:31PM
Description: Sam has read a great new romance novel, Strawberries for Dessert by Marie Sexton, and he wants Randy to read it too.
Believe in Love (Gay & Lesbian)
1 chapters   —   updated Feb 26, 2010 02:02PM
Description: This is a short story I wrote for Valentine's Day 2010. It was spurred by an ugly confrontation on my husband's Facebook account over someone who felt they had a right to vote on same-sex marriage in Iowa. It was just one of those things that bothered me but had nowhere to go, so I made a story out of it. I'm not sure how to classify it as genre, so I'm just sort of pasting my usual on there. Happy reading, Heidi

Gale covers some serious subjects in this book, and we go deep in the feels. We begin with a character as close to the edge of unredeemable as I think you can get in a romance, not from actions as much as inaccessibility. But Gale has mad skills, and ...more

Heidi Cullinan, Nowhere Ranch

“It was a full Spears album, apparently, and each song was as ridiculous as the one before. They were catchy, yes, but so was the plague.”
Heidi Cullinan, Dance With Me

“Sometimes the ones we love are like butterflies, flitting all over, and we have to sit and wait patiently for them to land. Sometimes they never do, and that’s a risk we take. But sometimes what they need most is to see us sitting still, patient, waiting. To understand that we’re going to be there no matter what, that we’re the ones who are always sitting there waiting, loyal, loving. Sometimes that’s more powerful than any words.”
Heidi Cullinan, Love Lessons

Heidi Cullinan If you're wanting to read Nowhere Ranch, you have two choices. Buy it in the next seven days, or wait 15-30 days until I get it re-edited and back up for sale. It's not going to change much, but if you want it extra sparkly and with a spanky new cover, do some deep breathing and wait until early March when I have it all prettied up again. If you want to know when it's up right away, join my newsletter (link on the homepage of my website, www.heidicullinan.com). It'll be up in ebook and paperback, available at pretty much every retailer where I can get it uploaded. If this moves you any, it will absolutely be cheaper when I put it up. Probably quite cheap for the first month. Maybe even ridiculously so.
