On Writing:

 

“Heather looks at her subject (scene or character) in a direct, clear-eyed way, and the words come as if from an underground stream—vivid, original words—that make you see exactly what she is looking at. You find yourself in the scene, feeling what the character is feeling. Heather is not a lazy writer. She does not resort to somebody else's way of saying a thing. Her writing has freshness and authenticity. It's like a sumptuous meal you want to sit down and linger over.”
