Heidi Cullinan has always enjoyed a good love story, provided it has a happy ending. Proud to be from the first Midwestern state with full marriage equality, Heidi is a vocal advocate for LGBT rights. She writes positive-outcome romances for LGBT characters struggling against insurmountable odds because she believes there’s no such thing as too much happy ever after. When Heidi isn't writing, she enjoys playing with new recipes, reading romance and manga, playing with her cats, and watching too much anime. 

Heidi Cullinan is currently not accepting new questions.

I wanted to write this post a week ago, but as things go with me, especially this past year, it took a bit of time. So forgive me as I am incredibly late to the RWA national conference recap party.

I had an incredible time.

Quite possibly that is the most understated statement I’ve ever made, but I must begin somewhere, so we’ll start there. I had an incredible time. The theme was rethink, revita... Read more of this blog post »

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

A Damon Suede novel never disappoints, and Licktey Split is a delicious treat not to be missed. It’s a sultry, sexy, slow-burn salted with kink and roasted with decadent indulgence that will curl your toes and rattle your spurs.

“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

“You can't say that you need to burn witches and shun gay men but eat pork and wear all the mixed fibers you want!!”

“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 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.
