I’m Heather Hildenbrand, bestselling romance author, adventurer, motorcycle rider, and fiction author coach.
I’ve been published AND making full time income doing it since 2011. I began Fiction Author Coach in 2013 as a way to show others how I did it.
I was born and raised in a small town in northern Virginia where I was homeschooled through high school. Since 2011, I’ve published more than 20 romance novels including the bestselling Dirty Blood series & Imitation (optioned by NBC for television). I am thrilled to be a full-time, work-from-home author (no more rush hour traffic!) and am passionate about teaching & encouraging other authors to do the same.
I split my time between coastal Virginia and Florida and I absolutely love having a mobile career and outrageous lifestyle of living in two places.
I believe in authors getting paid for their work and in building your love of writing into a CAREER, not just a hobby. I believe in creating passive income so that even when you’re sitting on a tropical beach on a small island like Guam, (where I used to live half the year) you’re earning your paycheck. And mostly, I believe in your ability to CONNECT. With income, with your readers, and with your dreams.
I believe that if writing is your passion, you have an inherent desire to connect this way. An actual need to see your stories leaving a mark on people. AND I believe you can make good money doing all of those things.
With Fiction Author Coach, I pay it forward through sharing what works for me–and what doesn’t–when it comes to writing, marketing, and keeping a clean and upbeat head space in order to make all this possible.

My fiction has been nominated for multiple Reader’s Choice awards, including Best Cover, Best Villain, Best Series, and Best Kiss. On top of writing and coaching, I am a a speaker and workshop teacher for writers’ groups, conferences, and schools.
