Five Glass Slippers :: Rachel Heffington

And here we are again! Another lovely author to meet. I'll skip all the info dump from yesterday and let's go right to the question. :)

Today, Rachel Heffington is visiting!

As a Virginia girl myself, I'm interested to know how this lovely state of ours has helped inspire your writing? (Because surely it has!)

Wow, good question. Well, I think I have an abiding love for tradition and independence for which I thank my close proximity to Colonial Williamsburg and Jamestown and all things historical. Also, the landscape of this beautiful state is a respite for me when I'm feeling dried-up and uninspired. A drive up to NoVa (Northern Virginia) is especially therapeutic. :)

That definitely makes sense. I love visiting Colonial Williamsburg!

Rachel Heffington is a Christian, a novelist, and a people-lover. Outside of the realm of words, Rachel enjoys the Arts, traveling, mucking about in the kitchen, listening for accents, and making people laugh. She dwells in rural Virginia with her boisterous family and her black cat, Cricket.

In February 2014, Rachel released her debut novel, Fly Away Home, and is excited to collaborate on Five Glass Slippers with her fellow authoresses. She hopes to release her second full-length novel and first mystery (Anon, Sir, Anon) in autumn 2014. For more on Rachel, her current projects, and writing in general, visit her on her blog: The Inkpen Authoress.

The Windy Side of Care

Alisandra is determined to have her rights. She knows that she is the king's secretly dispossessed daughter, the true heir to the throne. Prince Auguste is an imposter, and if she plays her cards right, Alis will prove it to the world! That is, if charming Auguste doesn't success in winning her heart before she gets her chance...

Stay tuned! More fun yet to come....


  1. Awesome question, Kara! I know my home state and surrounding areas have woven their way into my writing. I like writing about these places I love. :)

    Thank you for featuring Rachel today!


    1. Thanks, Amber. I imagined that where you grow up would have an impact on your writing, and I'm glad I was right. I'm pretty sure that would be the case for me anyway. :)

      I loved Rachel's answer! Perhaps because we share a love of the same state. I love all the history to be found around Virginia.

  2. I live in NoVa myself now, and I love driving around once we get out of the suburbs -- all the trees, the gentle hills, a glimpse of a very old house here and there -- lovely! And so, so, so much history -- definitely inspiring!

    1. I so agree with you, Hamlette! There's much to be inspired with around the hills of VA. :)


Thank you so much for visiting my little corner of the internet! :)
