poet + author

D.L. Heather is the pen name for poet, writer, and former music journalist Debra Heather. She has a B.A. in English and is a best selling author of inspirational poetry books, and is best known for her book, Life Interrupted. Writing came into her life in her teens by way of therapy and the exploration of healing through journaling.


Her writing is motivated by her experiences with childhood trauma, love, loss, healing, heartbreak, chronic pain and self-discovery. Her words take many on a roller coaster of downfalls and rediscovery. A private person by nature, she prefers to let her work speak for itself, in the way poetry allows her to. She hopes to inspire others and reinforce the fact that you are not alone. When she isn’t writing in her studio, she enjoys travelling, reading, movies and gardening.
