Welcome to Roadside Press, Heather! Congratulations all around!!
Heather Dorn was born with a plastic spork in her mouth. As a child her mother would take her to Taco Bell and let her choose 2 tacos from the 59 cent menu. Since then, she has been Taco Bell obsessed. She grew up mostly in California and Texas, so she knows Taco Bell is not really Mexican food, but she loves it the way people love their high school garage bands. Nostalgia is yummy. Heather’s poetry, fiction, essays, and art can be found in a variety of journals including The American Poetry Review, Paterson Literary Review, Ragazine, The Kentucky Review, and more. She earned her Ph.D. in English Creative Writing from SUNY Binghamton where she is a lecturer. She is also the Editor-in-Chief for Binghamton Writes, a first year writing textbook. After work she goes home to watch true crime. Her dog, Apple, barks at something invisible. Her cat, Frank, stands in front of the screen posing and blocking her view because he is a model. On the weekends, she wishes she had a washing machine.
