I quit nursing school to take care of him and knew he was dying. My family didn't, and it was really stressful. I took walks to decompress and thought about him on my walk. The night before, my favorite show at the time, Deadliest Catch, was on, about the Alaskan crab fisherman. They were talking about superstitions, with the main one about women aboard fishing vessels, and how they were taboo. I started thinking about that and my father-in-law and relationships and the story bubbled in my head. I'd never written anything before, wanted to see if I could. I wrote the Catch and self-published it.

I was hooked!

Afterward, I knew I wanted to write a series, but also knew I didn't want the series to be about werewolves, vampires, or witches. I brainstormed ideas of things that interested me and at top of the list was Greek mythology because I always loved the stories in school.

I attended a writing conference and pitched the idea to a New York agent, who loved it. She gave me a couple of helpful suggestions and the next year I came back and pitched it to five New York publishers, agents, and editors with five requests for material. I settled with the Wild Rose Press and the Heaven & Earth series was born.(less)
Jeny Heckman Never had it, thank God! It sounds horrific and makes me terrified, to tell you the truth.
