Lectio

the things I’ve written

By Heather Clitheroe

Welcome! My writing is a mix of science fiction and fantasy. SFF is so often plot-driven, but I strive for stories that are as much about the concept as it is about character — the choices made, the sacrifices, the fears and hopes, the joys and losses.

Thank you for reading along with me.
