My Writing Journey

Tossed Together Heather Manning

She is tossed into a marriage of convenience. He finds his new bride anything but convenient.

When I was 16 years old, I decided to attend the Romantic Times Booklover's Convention--admittedly, this was mainly to meet one of my favorite authors. On a whim, I pitched my novel to several editors and agents, and ended up landing a book deal with Clean Reads Publishing (formerly known as Astraea Press).

Since then, I have professionally published three inspirational historical novels in the Ladies of the Caribbean series: Swept to Sea, Carried Home, and Tossed Together. 

When I am not writing novels, you can catch me writing plays and scripts. Some of my pieces have been performed at both the Coterie Young Playwrights Festival and the Kansas City Fringe Festival. 

In Fall 2017, my script called A March Family Victorian Christmas, an adaption of Little Women was performed at Stephens College, replacing the previous Charles Dickens Victorian Christmas, which ran for twenty years. I also acted in the production as Louis May Alcott. Read all about this production here.
