Monday’s Friend: Heather Greenis

Today my guest is MuseItUp author Heather Greenis. Welcome, Heather!

Heather GreenisThe Beginning
By Heather Greenis

Thank you so much for hosting me.

I find it interesting to read how others began writing at an early age. In school, I hated multiple choice and true and false questions but love writing essays.  I aced them, every time. It didn’t click that I could or should write.

My career began in finance which taught me a lot, personally. My positions gave me the opportunity to sit and have some good conversations with clients. Not that I plan to write about their stories, but I certainly have ideas for character development.

The concept for the Natasha Saga began with a dream and my imagination had fun with it. I’ve always been a fan of a good drama with a touch of mystery. Something that makes a person think.  When I need a breather, I enjoy something light that makes me chuckle.

Speaking with a friend recently, she gave me a huge complement. “While reading your books I have to remind myself you wrote these. I actually know the author behind this. It has drama, but also has some lighter moments. The books hit all my emotions.”

I have a lot of respect for this woman so I was thrilled.

Writing has become more than a hobby, it is a passion.

NATASHA’S DREAM and NATASHA’S DIARY are available through my publisher, Museitup Publishing and all major on-line distributors of ebooks.

Natasha dreamsNatasha’s Dream (Book 1 in the Natasha Saga)

Natasha’s dream is to escape a horrid future. The reserved young woman unexpectedly rebels in search of something very different. But there are consequences.

Growing up, her only friends were her brothers and Nanny. In her parent’s mind, she was a mistake. As a result of an innocent swim, she discovered life existed beyond the walls of her home. Families, peers, underprivileged children. Can a dream turn into reality? Anything is possible, but dreams come with consequences that not only affect her, but those she loves. What is Natasha willing to risk to persevere?

Natasha’s Diary (Book 2 in the saga)

More than a collection of inner thoughts, the diary becomes a blueprint for future generations. Will history repeat itself?

Keeghan’s subconscious has played tricks on her in the past, but she’s normally able to control the outcome of her dreams. No such luck with this story. The mystery magnifies when her husband William discovers something else by the eroding sea wall, something that peaks their curiosity even further. Now, Keeghan wants the saga to continue. Drawn into the story more than she was prepared for, she needs answers.

Natasha diaryHope is growing up quickly. She’s intelligent, independent, and stubborn. Negative traits inherited from both her parents surface at inconvenient times. Will her beauty help or hinder her?

A tragedy. Stewart is forced to make a decision that will affect his life and the rest of his family. Then, an encounter that changes everything. Is he ready for this? Has Stewart’s past really been left behind? Will history repeat itself? Trust, integrity, and tradition all come into question.

Natasha’s Hope (Book 3 – launching March 14, 2014)

Tragedies reshape Stewart’s plans and Hope’s dreams. Is the future of the orphanage at risk?

Natasha’s Hope – Having read the diary, Hope desperately wants the world to evolve according to her dreams. Through Adam, Hope finds an inner strength she never knew existed. Life-threatening events test her inner resolve and purpose in life.

Coming soon – Natasha’s Legacy – the conclusion to the saga – launching June 2014

Author Bio

Natasha hopeHeather has an uncanny ability to frequently “manipulate” her dreams. As a bonus, she remembers them in extensive detail the following morning. A dream inspired the basic storyline. Then her overactive imagination developed the characters and the detail. In her spare time Heather assists the Healing Cycle, Hospice Palliative Care. She is also actively involved with the local curling club, currently volunteering her time teaching children when she isn’t curling herself. Heather has a passion for travel, photography and gardening. She would like to extend a special thank-you to her niece for reading and re-reading and to her husband for his support, and encouragement, suggesting she “write it down”.

    Lovely post. I enjoyed Natasha’s Dream and just started reading the second book. Looking forward to learning more of Natasha’s story!

      Hope you enjoy N’ Diary. Some people tell me it’s very different from N’s Dream. My editor send me emails as she did the initial read telling me she was laughing or tearing up at a particular scene. I’m interesting to hear your view.

    Great interview, Heather! I would be interested if you did a blog on how you “manipulate” your dreams.Best wishes on the conclusion to the saga! Quite an accomplishment! Have you decided what you will write after you are done with this project?

      Thanks for the comment, Susan. I have two stories in the pipeline. Neither are historical, but something very different. I’m in the process of writing one and tweaking and rewriting the second. I’m not rushing to submit either. Four books in a year has kept me busy.
      As to manipulating my dreams, knowing dreams are the final stage of sleep, the subconscious plays a part. I do have some weird and creepy dreams.
