First and foremost, I love to read! Fantasy, sci-fi, steampunk, historical, romance, and horror are my favorites.

I am an acquisitions editor for City Owl Press as well as an award winning author of paranormal, fantasy, steampunk, historical romance, and YA. When I'm not reading, editing, writing, or surfing my social networking sites, I can be found on the slopes, the hiking trails, or paddleboarding. As a native Oregonian, I enjoy the outdoors almost as much as the worlds I create on the pages. No need to travel to the Great Northwest, though, you can find me on my website, and the first Monday of every month on Twitter where I co-moderate the #WritersRoad chat.

Tempered & Turned's Origins

Tempered & Turned started it's life under a different title, with a different publisher. Originally it was published as Twice Turned with the cover on the left. 
When my original publisher first started developing the cover, they asked me to pick out models and images I liked. When I did, I bought the images myself to use as promotional matierial later, and I put my design skills to work to com Read more of this blog post »

“There was a sensual feel to the way Aiden's eyes traveled over her, leaving her tingling without even a touch. ~from The Secret of Spruce Knoll.”
Heather McCorkle, The Secret of Spruce Knoll

“Tis alright. I'm not going to hurt ye. Ye're one of me kind, I wouldn't dare," he said.
So he could sense what she was too. That was encouraging, sort of.
"And what if I wasn't?" she asked.
The young man chuckled, a warm sound that eased her mind a bit. "Well I wouldn't ravish ye if that's what ye're worried about. I'm a Celt, not a barbarian," he said.
Neala couldn't help but smile. "Some would say they are one in the same.”

“The stars could have burned out around us, the moon could have fallen from the sky, and I wouldn't have known it. Not when he leaned indecently close and pressed his cheek against mine to murmur, "Tell me a secret."
I wanted him to tell me how he stopped time like that. How he read my mind. I wanted to admit I wondered if thoughts of me troubled him when he lay awake at night. But I could make none of that come to my lips....
Instead... I whispered back, "I've seen the future."
He didn't laugh. He didn't mock, not like he had done at Privalovna's performance. In the middle of our waltz, he stopped, nose to nose with me. He uncovered me with a look that somehow bared him, too.
And his question told me everything - that he stopped time because he needed me, that he read my mind because we were one. That I troubled his nights, indeed, because what he asked revealed it all.
"Am I with you there?”
Saundra Mitchell, The Vespertine

“Could you have possibly put more water between us?”
Saundra Mitchell, The Vespertine

“Do forgive me.... I've no reputation of my own, and I forget they matter.”

Diann Shaddox Hi Heather,I'm introducing my new book, A Faded Cottage, a SC love story.Quaid Witherspoon is a man turning fifty, a man with success and money, a world acclaimed artist, but a simple feat of holding a paintbrush turns Quaid’s life upside down
when fate steps in. I'm spreading the word about Essential Tremors and for each book sold a donation will be given back to the IETF. Thanks
