Heather Webber is an American novelist best known for writing cozy mystery and romance novels. She also writes paranormal mysteries under the pen name Heather Blake. She has more than 20 novels to her name spread over four series of novels. These novels include the highly popular bestseller Lucy Valentine romance mystery series, the Nina Quinn Landscaping mystery series, the Darcy Merriweather Wishcraft mystery series, and the Potion Shop mystery series. With parents that made sure that she had any type of book that she wanted, she developed a love for reading very early on. However, her love for mystery was sparked while she was in the tenth grade and had to do an assignment on the novel, The Hound of the Baskervilles. It was not long before she discovered Agatha Christie and Mary Higgins Clark. Growing up in Boston, she had always wanted to be a medical examiner and watched the TV show Quincy ME religiously. However, it was not until much later that she realized that it was the twists and turns of plot and the unraveling of the mystery that she loved and not the medical part of the show. She currently lives in Cincinnati, Ohio with her husband and three children. When she is not writing, you can find her reading, baking, crocheting, watching a movie, or solving a jigsaw puzzle with the family. She also loves to watch reality TV, particularly anything to do with cooking competitions. Occasionally they will get out of the house and hike to the picturesque mountains in the northeast for a picnic.

Her watching of mystery TV and reading of mysteries such as Janet Evanovich have naturally influenced her writing. The Lucy Valentine paranormal mysteries have been very much influenced by her fascination with psychics and of paranormal TV series such as I Dream of Jeannie and Bewitched. Nonetheless, while some of the novels involve some element of the paranormal, she asserts that given that she started out writing romances and still loves the genre, aspects of both genres are present in most of her works. Apart from finding inspiration from TV, news bytes are another important source that spark ideas that she then researches twists, turns and embellishes into intriguing plot lines with the paranormal and romantic. Research is an important part of the writing process for the series and she will always have several tabs open when she is writing. Heather is one of the most meticulous authors who makes sure that even the finer details like the names of characters fit perfectly. Some of her most important sources for these include road names, baseball rosters, and even genealogy search engines.

As for Webber’s writing process, she asserts that she does not have a particular schedule for writing a book. Writing five days a weeks, it usually takes her between four and six months to complete a title. Given that she writes titles simultaneously, she can churn out about four titles in a year and has done so. She has no particular process for the actual writing as she literally wings the first half of the book, and plots the second half before going back to make revisions to ensure it is all one cohesive whole. She also does not bother having a character chart preferring to edit the characters motivations and dispositions as she writes. Nonetheless, even with all the backtracking she manages to write quite intriguing narratives with each series she writes. Part of that has to do with the fact that Heather Webber is one of the new hybrid writers that self-publish as well as publishing with traditional publishing houses. For the author going the self-publishing route has provided many advantages over traditional media as she can now extend her most beloved series indefinitely, which would not be the case with traditional publishing. Still, her works are split down the middle with half in traditional publishing and half as indie published titles.

In Truly Madly the first novel of the Lucy Valentine series, Heather Webber introduces us to the enthralling story of Lucy Valentine. Lucy Valentine is a smart and single woman, which makes her one of the most unqualified persons to run a matchmaking company. But when her parents need to get away for some time and with her rent due, Lucy has no option but to run the business. But it soon becomes clear that she does not know anything about matchmaking. Legend has it that the ability to pair up perfect couples and read auras is given to Valentines by Cupid. Lucy lost all her skills years ago when she was accidentally zapped by an electric surge, which gave her the ability to find lost objects, not pair up lonely persons looking for love. Even as it looks like her skills would be useless in a city full of lonely souls, you would be surprised to learn what some people in Boston are looking for. When Lucy uses her skills to find a missing wedding ring – which she finds on a dead body, it is just the beginning of an unexpected adventure. She asks the gorgeously handsome private investigator in the upstairs apartment to help find a resolution to the crime, thinking that maybe this is how she will find love.

In Deeply, Desperately the second novel of the Lucy Valentine series the irrepressible Lucy Valentine makes a comeback as the world’s worst matchmaker. Seeking to revitalize her family’s matchmaking business, she faces a quandary, as that she does not have the same psychic skills that Cupid blessed her progenitors with. But she can find other seemingly not so valuable things like socks in the dryer, needles in haystacks, car keys and finally lost loves. In recent times, Lucy has discovered that she is very good at finding and reuniting lost loves, which is a stroke of professional genius. It is not long before she becomes the go to guy for anyone looking to create new sparks or reunite with old flames. But when she suddenly finds herself in the middle of what seems to be a murder, she thinks she might have gotten herself stranded in the deep end. However, not all is lost as the Sean Donahue, the fine-looking former fire fighter turned amateur sleuth comes to her rescue. Could he just be the man she has been searching for all her adult life? Valentine Inc never takes matters of love too lightly.
