Heidi Tassone grew up in the Bronx, New York and currently resides in Florida with her husband, Joe and her dog, Brutus. She’s won several writing contests for her short works, including Star of Wonder, Deadly Dating, Our Little Secret and Maxine’s Valentines Surprise, and has five tales published in an Anthology called, Mosaic, A Collection of Short Stories . She is also published in Gems Magazine. Heidi is a graduate of The Institute of Children’s Literature and The Long Ridge Writer’s Group where she successfully completed short fiction and novel writing courses. She enjoys her quiet life in Florida where she can freely write stories and novels that keep readers at the edge of their seat.
Heidi first aspired to write when having lunch with her now husband, Joe. He mentioned a dream he had which seemed very realistic. Heidi told him she always wanted to write a novel, but never tried. With encouragement from her husband, she took several writing courses online.
While driving to work, a thought came to her regarding a women living in New York having visions of murders, only the murders weren’t in New York. They were somewhere tropical. In search of the reason behind her visions, she discovers the murders are real, but taking place in Florida. Thus sets off a world wind of turmoil and intrigue for her protagonist, Lisa Martin. From finding out the truth about her family, to romance, to becoming the focal point of the murderer, Lisa Martin is in for a ride of her young life. Hence, “Behind Green Eyes.” becomes a reality.
Because of an online writing group, Fanstory.com, one of the secondary characters becomes a favorite. So began a second novel, not yet completed, “Deadly Secrets”, staring a New York detective, Peter Sharpe searching for the killer of his former Captain.
Heidi enjoys writing to keep the reader surprised. She also loves short cliff hangers throughout her stories. Hopefully she will find the time to get “Behind Green Eyes,” published and “Deadly Secrets,” completed.
