Heather L. Haven

I am a story teller by nature and love the written word. In my career, I've written short stories, novels, comedy acts, plays, television treatments, ad copy, commercials, and even ghost-wrote a book.
One of my very first jobs as a writer was given to me by my then agent. It was that of writing a love story for a book published by Bantam called Moments of Love. I had a deadline of one week and then promptly came down with the flu. I wrote "The Sands of Time" with a temperature of 102 and delivered some pretty hot stuff because of it. A short stint with No Soap Radio in New York City as a staff comedy writer was a dream come true! I knew writing was for me, in particular, funny writing.
My two one-act plays, The Closet Corpse and Baltimore, farcical comedies both, were well received whenever and wherever they've been performed. I had the good fortune to have Baltimore done at Playwrights Horizon in New York City, shortly after The Closet Corpse premiered off-off B'Way, starring the very talented Sandy Faison, of Broadway's Annie fame.
 While I love writing the Alvarez Mystery Series, where I get to be all the characters including the cat, Persephone (Percy) Cole, Private Investigator, has arrived! A vintage gumshoe cut from the same cloth as Sam Spade, Lew Archer, or Phillip Marlow, she's one of Manhattan's first female private detectives.  Persephone Cole finds her holiday cheer in solving crimes of the most deadly kind - murder.
