Home/Students/Students: Heather Wehland

Heather Wehland grew up in the town that inspired One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest and left it to settle in the beautiful storybook forests of Northern California. She studied cultural anthropology and religious studies at Humboldt State University, fields which feed into her favorite facet of writing: world building. She has a cat, a husband, red hair, and a very hard time writing bios about herself. Her year revolves around National Novel Writing Month, not only because it’s her birthday month and a month that celebrates the joy of writing a shitty first draft, but also because she is the Municipal Liaison for her NaNoWriMo region and hosts a weekly year-round writing group. And she’s a Hufflepuff!
