Emma Heatherington is a novelist is a British author from Donaghmore, Co Tyrone. She writes romantic suspense as Emma Louise Jordan and romantic comedies as Emma Heatherington. She began writing in 2005 when she entered a short story competition that she went on to win. By December, she had written and staged her debut musical and a few months later signed a book deal with Dodder that resulted in the novel “Crazy For You” published in 2007. In addition to her novels, she has written more than seventy educational plays and short films and also served as a ghostwriter for Philomena Begley a country legend. She was also responsible for “Born For The Road” the story of Nathan Carter that made the shortlist for the 2018 Post Irish Book Awards. Emma is also a regular contributor to the Sunday Life and Belfast Telegraph newspapers and has made appearances on chat shows on UTV, TV3, and RTE. She lives with her partner Jim McKee, an Irish singer/songwriter and artist alongside their five children.

Emma Heatherington is a prolific author and at some point, she was penning a novel every six months. What is even more incredible is that she does this even as she holds down a job as a freelance writer, arts sector PR practitioner, and mother to five. With a gig as scriptwriter for the Bing Creative Network where she is in charge of facilitating drama workshops, it is a wonder she manages to get any writing done. However, she has said that she loves the variety of her work as it makes it easy to write about a variety of subjects and themes. At her day job, she can write about anything from a children’s puppet show to a dark theatrical piece on mental health. Despite all that she has to do, books are a constant in the background. Whether it be the frothy and lyrical romance written as Heatherington or the suspenseful and grittier page-turners as Emma Louise Jordan she always has something cooking.

Emma first got started writing as a child when she used to write songs that she would show to her mother for approval. While she is now mainly a scriptwriter and novelist, she began in songwriting and still pursue that whenever she can. As a child, she loved music of all kinds and remembers her mother singing along to the radio as she prepared the Sunday meal. As an eight-year-old, she spent a lot of time penning pieces and bits of song together fancying herself the new Bananarama. Her first musical was the story of a murder that she performed at the reopening of the local theater. However, her ambitions lay in the big city – in Nashville where she dreamed of becoming a songwriter. The death of her 36-year-old mother in 1991 threw her off-track as she tried to come to terms with it throughout her teenage years. She had her first child at 19 and then went to college where she studied communications, marketing and advertising. Heatherington’s degree brought her into the world of Event Management and Public Relations. As a person that believed in moving people through stories whether it be to make them cry or laugh, she soon felt the hunger to write while doing the 9 to 5. She entered a competition in 2005 which she won to get her first publishing deal. The novel You’ve Been Gone went on to become a Tesco Ireland Number one title. A decade later she has more than 8 novels to her name and is looking forward to publishing even more.

Emma Heatherington’s “Rewrite the Stars” is the story of Charlotte Taylor a student from Dublin. She was contented with the shared accommodation common with student life when Mathew her brother brought home his friend Tom Farley. There is an instant connection between Tom and Charlotte as he was her biggest fan encouraging her as she performed her musical pieces on her guitar right in that hormone-filled, smelly tiny student room. Charlotte was completely taken by Tom Farley since he espoused the movie star swagger from old school heroes and villains. But that was in 2010 and since then life moved on and the budding romance between the two fizzled out. In the meantime, Charlotte had become a primary school teacher and her dreams for performing have been relegated to imparting the same on her students. However, she never forgot the swashbuckling Tom Farley and a chance meeting half a decade later alters her life trajectory forever. All she can now think of are the exciting possibilities that she could only dream of and dismiss as unattainable. But then she had to make a hard decision that may shatter all her dreams.
