Heather lives in York, with her son and a neurotic half-Siamese cat. Under the name of Heather Cawte Winskill, her poetry was published in a variety of magazines and anthologies in the 1980s and 90s, including Psychopoetica, Krax, Tees Valley Writer, Braquemard and Coriander 1 and 2. She performed at numerous venues, from Cabaret à Go Go to the first Durham Literature Festival, where she supported Dannie Abse.


Her first collection, Spiderwoman, was published by Bay Press in 1995. In 1997, she developed chronic health problems that have left her virtually housebound, and for several years she wrote very little. In the last few years, she has found her voice again and has begun writing more regularly, as Heather Cawte.

Heather Cawte Hello! Long time no hear from :)) How are you?

My son and I have just moved to York, where my sister lives, and we're very happy, but I'm shattered. Worth it, though ;)

I'm really sorry that I don't have copies of the books to send you, or I would have signed them gladly. The Kindle poetry book I have out, 'poems in no particular order', has everything from the actual book of Spiderwoman plus a whole load of new stuff. That's on sale on Amazon here: http://tinyurl.com/nmcw399

At some point there will be a collection of short stories, and a novel, too, but they've had to take a back seat while we moved. I am never moving again ;))

Take care, love Heather xx

Sarah Jacquie Hello! It's been a while! Not sure if you even remember me =)
I was checking up on my friends, adding some books, etc. when I saw that you had also published some! I would love to purchase one, any chance I could also get the author to sign it? =) I would adore reading your Poems book. Hope you're still keeping up with the knitting, I just never got the knack!


Heather Cawte We bed dwellers have to stick together ;)

I also appreciate being able to read a book again without being able to remember a single thing about it from the last reading :)

Sarah Jacquie Thanks for being such a good book pal =) I know what you mean about feeling intelligent before reading a book, too much in fact! Some books I feel like jello mush, then the second time I feel like its a new book and not in a different language! Hope you are doing well! I love to see how much you update, it makes me happy to know that while I am alone sometimes laying in bed, someone else is in another world while I am too!

Well, it's not what you might call a light read :) Seriously, the poetry is amazing, and I kept stopping and saying, 'So *that's* where that quotation is from...'

Definitely one to tackle when you're feeling intelligent ;) (That's why I've not read it till now!!)

Sarah Jacquie Ooooh please do tell how Paradise Lost goes. That is a book I have had my eye on!
