More About the Author

I live in North Ayrshire in beautiful Scotland with my twin girls and husband Paul, although we are originally from Lancashire in the north of England.

I am a qualified medical secretary by profession, with a few years experience in the surgical departments of a busy general hospital. I gave this up when I had my gorgeous twins.

Writing has been a passion of mine since I was a child and I love writing in a variety of genres, especially historical, supernatural, crime and romance, combining and mixing them up. I am particularly interested in the Georgian and Victorian eras, 1920's and Scottish history, all of which I have set novels in.

When I'm not writing I love to read and I am particularly inspired by Edgar Allen Poe, the Brontes, Stuart MacBride, Anne Rice, Karen Rose, Martina Cole, Ian Rankin, Georgette Heyer and Daphne Du Maurier. I also enjoy reading, yoga and contemporary and gothic bellydance.

My new novel, Duality (Dividing Line Series #9), is now available for pre-order on Amazon Kindle.

I appeared on a panel at the Ayrshire Tidelines Book Festival in September 2015. I was also author of the month in December 2013 on the website for crime fiction lovers, theresbeenamurder.wordpress.com.

I have been trying to get published for a few years now so being on Amazon feels like an exciting step forward! Many thanks to everyone who has downloaded my books, I hope you enjoy them. I also want to say thank you for the wonderful reviews and kind messages I've received, which encourage me to keep going. Your support is greatly appreciated.

I had read 'Breaking Away' by this author and loved every minute of reading. As a result i downloaded Dividing Line which i wouldnt normally read as gang warfare and bloody violence is not my type of read far removed infact. The first couple of chapters were good but didnt convince me that i was going to continue reading as i prefer softer stories with mystery, drama, romance but not violence. However i kept reading and found that i coudln't put it down. The main character Rachel's evolvement into a tough mobsters wife was infact surprisingly fascinating, the constant twists and turns in the story line and characters kept me hooked. There was a love story but not the main element of this book. I have never read this type of book before and dont tend to enjoy watching films along these lines, however this pulled me in and had me addicted. This author has taken me into territory outside my comfort zone which im glad to say has widened my reading interests and will certainly download her other books.

Dividing Line (Dividing Line Book #1)
Heather Atkinson

Contains strong language, sex and violence.

first time i have read one of heather's books fantastic story line I just couldn't put it down, i had to keep reading a few more pages at every opportunity.
I love it when I find an author who's books I enjoy but have not read them all yet, as it means i get a good few weeks out of reading them all.
The characters were interesting and at different points I found myself loving and hating the main characters, which is always a good sign and the story was action packed. Without giving away the plot, the twists and there is plenty of them lull you into thinking that the ending will be different to how it was. A few times I kept thinking I know where this is going. But each time I was Wrong.
The book is set in Manchester and focuses on two rival gangs the Maguires and Laws.
Rachel falls for a Danny who is part of the Maguire family, even though she is from the area run by the Law family.
This is where the trouble starts and to be honest it never stops. I had never heard of Heather Atkinson, but a few of my reading friends had kept mentioning how good her books were so i thought i would give them a go, I am so glad I did.
An absolute must if you like Martina Cole style books.

Book description..
When Rachel marries Danny Maguire, younger son of the most powerful criminal family in Manchester she thinks she can cope with his way of life. After all, he's the legitimate face of the family, isn't he?

This book started off a bit he said, she said, in my opinion and I'm not entirely sure at which point this stopped and the story became impossible to put down. Amazing twists and turns throughout this completely gripping storyline. I found myself loving and hating the main characters at different parts of the book, which is always a sign of a good book. The last time I read such a compelling story was, funnily enough, when I read this authors Breaking Away series. I absolutely loved those stories and was definitely not disappointed with this one. Fantastic writing!

I loved this authors breaking away series - was completely hooked on the trilogy, so I didn't hesitate to download Dividing Lines. I must admit, even though her books had me hooked, I didn't read it straight way as this story was about an area that doesn't actually interest me - gang wars. However a friend of mine had started it and said they couldn't stop reading so I thought I was time to start, and boy I am glad I did!!!!

The book is set in Manchester and focuses on two rival gangs the Maguires and Laws. Rachel falls for a Danny who is part of the Maguire family, even though she is from the area run by the Law family - and this is where the trouble starts. The thing I found very strange was how much I actually liked the characters in this, even thought they all did very bad things. Heathers way of writing draws you into their lives, and I felt that they were good people, when in reality they are we're not. As with Heathers other books, be prepared for twist, turns, jaw dropping moments to keep you on your toes until the very end.

This book was so good, I went straight on to Dividing Loyalties which left me just as gripped, couldn't put it down. 3 days and both books finished!

I was looking for a book to read on a train journey and Heather Atkinson appeared for 77p. This was a fabulous read and well written, it has everything from crime to love and I think who ever reads this would enjoy just as much as I did.
