Heather Burnside was born in inner Manchester and still resides in the city. She has had articles published in several popular UK magazines including Bella, Chat and The Lady, before going on to publish her first novel, Slur, a Manchester-based crime thriller. This was followed by the sequel, A Gangster’s Grip, which focuses on the inter-gang rivalry of 90s Manchester. Heather has also published a multi-genre short story collection entitled, Crime, Conflict & Consequences. When not working on her books, she provides a range of writing services for a diverse range of clients.
Heather talked to me about her books and inspirations. And, of course, she shared her Apocalypse Books selections with me.
