MARK YOUR CALENDAR! WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 17, 6pm EST – Q&A WITH ENTANGLED PUBLISHING


We are so excited to host Heather Howland, Co-Founder of Entangled Publishing on Wednesday, February 17, at 6pm EST via zoom. It’s a one-hour Q&A with no holds barred. Join us.



Heather Howland 

After years of editing in the legal, industrial, and technical sectors, Heather Howland packed up her desk and dove into her true passion: romance. She went on to co-found Entangled Publishing, where she has helped launch the careers of several NYT and USA TODAY bestsellers, hitting both lists several times over while garnering starred reviews and RITA® nods. 

Heather holds a BS in creative writing and psychology and channels that knowledge into her love of compelling character arcs and cinematic stories. Originally a city girl from NorCal's bustling and diverse Bay Area, you can now find her wandering the wilds of Oregon with her very own romance hero (a firefighter, rawr!), their two neurodiverse sons, and eleven fluffy family members, trying not to have an anxiety attack because things up north are too quiet. You can find her on Twitter at @HeatherHowland.
