About Me

Some people call me Heather, some people call me Vee. I am comfortable with both.

After brief stints in Georgia (where I was born), New York, Florida, Northern and Southern California, and a much longer stay in North Carolina, I found myself in Tucson, Arizona, where I have been living for nearly 15 years. By day, I am a media buyer/supervisor with a fondness for perfume oils, OPI’s Russian Navy nail polish, boots, post-punk and shoegaze and gothic americana, Caravaggio and Mucha, early modern history, speculative fiction, waistcoats, bourbon, wood smoke, coffee, and the color green. I am an Aquarius Sun/Moon with Leo rising living with a frighteningly well-read, sarcastic, and wonderful writer/gamer (and fellow Aquarian!) boyfriend, and we share custody of a black Lab/Pitbull mix named Oberon who enjoys w-a-l-k-s, vigorous and prolonged belly rubs, and splashing around in the pool.

You may know me as co-founder/co-runner of Vampire-Diaries.net, a fansite dedicated to The Vampire Diaries book series and television show, founded in February 2009 and officially closed in May 2014. I am also co-editor (with Red, my fellow V-D.net co-founder, and Leah Wilson) of A Visitor’s Guide to Mystic Falls: Your Favorite Authors on The Vampire Diaries (Smart Pop Books, available in Paperback and on Kindle), featuring essays by a wide variety of Young Adult authors, including Sarah Rees Brennan, Claudia Gray, and many more. I’ve been a regular guest on The Televixen‘s Vampire Diaries podcast and I Heart TVD Radio, and am featured (along with Red) in Crissy Calhoun’s Love You To Death: The Unofficial Companion to The Vampire Diaries (Paperback and Kindle). You can also find me in The Vampire Diaries: The Complete First Season special features (available on DVD and Blu Ray).

I’m also the co-author of Love You To Death – Season 4 and Love You To Death: The Unofficial Companion to The Vampire Diaries – Season 5 (ECW Press) with Crissy Calhoun, available wherever books are sold. I wrote the weekly The Originals In Review column for Vampire-Diaries.net during its inaugural season, freelanced for Alloy Entertainment, and wrote for Portland Book Review.

You can currently find me hosting Radio Oscura for 99.1 FM Downtown Radio Tucson. The show streams live at downtownradio.org every Tuesday night, 8-10 p.m.
