"Heather Blanton is blessed with a natural storytelling ability, an "old soul" wisdom, and a wide expansive heart. Her characters are vividly drawn, and in the western settings where life can be hard, over quickly, and seemingly without meaning, she reveals Larger Hands holding everyone and everything together." --Mark Richard, Executive Producer, AMC's Hell on Wheels, and PEN/Ernest Hemingway Award winner
"Love, love, love Ms. Blanton's ability to weave a skillful tale that captures and carries you from her first words to the end. Compelling story of "Going West" and all that entails in the lives of these ladies in Defiance." --Author Diane Gates
"Captivating story of the town of Defiance. I enjoyed the characters, their struggles, their love and their faith. I will reread them again." --Amazon review
Heather is the independent bestselling author of several Christian Westerns, including the Romance in the Rockies series, which has sold over 40,000 copies. Intrigued by the concept of three good sisters stranded in a lawless Colorado mining town, a few notable Hollywood producers have requested the script for her first book in that series, A Lady in Defiance. Heather’s writing is gritty and realistic. In fact, her books have been compared to AMC’s Hell on Wheels series, as well as the legendary Francine Rivers book, Redeeming Love.
She writes Westerns because she grew up on a steady diet of Bonanza, Gunsmoke, and John Wayne movies. Her most fond childhood memory is of sitting next to her father, munching on popcorn, and watching Lucas McCain unload that Winchester!
The best thing about Christmas for her is... getting a cup of coffee and having my prayer time in the lights of a Christmas tree in the pre-dawn quiet. That is so peaceful. Sublime, really.
This year is special because... we moved my momma from a nursing home in Florida to one near my hometown in Western North Carolina. It's a double-blessing: I get to see her AND my mountains more often!
