Author Kelley Heckart Shares Some Holiday Fantasies

Welcome to week two of the Winter Blog Tour. My guest today is Kelley Heckart. Kelley and I belong to the Lake Havasu City Writers Group so I've know Kelley for a few years. What I've pleasantly learned is that although Kelley resides on the earthly realm with her husband and two dogs, she always has one foot firmly planted in the otherworldly realm of mystical creatures, fierce warriors and magic. A psychic once told her she has an old soul and this comes across in her tales of long ago places. An avid reader, she turned her lifelong passion for Celtic Mythology into a way to express herself through writing. In her free time, she enjoys playing her bass guitar, writing poetry/lyrics, hiking, watching sunsets/sunrises and horseback riding.

Now, lets turn this over to Kelly -

Hi Sharon! Thanks for having me on your blog.

What is your favorite holiday food and why?

Pumpkin rolls. They are yummy!

You can have any person in history over for your holiday dinner. Who do you invite and what do you talk about?

I would invite W.B. Yeats. I love his writings on faeries, especially Celtic Twilight. I would want to hear his stories of how he gathered all of his information on faeries.


 Kelley Heckart writes historical fantasy romances set in ancient on up to early medieval time periods. Her stories reflect her passion for history, storytelling and the supernatural. Inspired by the ancient Celts, her tales are filled with fierce warriors, bold women, otherworldly creatures, magic, conflict and romance. Kelley can be found online at

Her latest release, Daughter of Night, is set in ancient Greece where two mortals are caught in the midst of the battle between the Titans and Olympian gods. Also, all three books in her Dark Goddess trilogy are now available in print, Kindle & Nook. Set in Dark Age Scotland, an Irish clan is tormented by a vengeful goddess and their only escape is to break an ancient faery curse. Buy links for all of Kelley’s books can be found here:

Hi Kelley,
I have never had pumpkin rolls. Perhaps you have the recipe to share?

Happy holidays!

This is kind of embarrassing, but I don't make the pumpkin rolls-I buy them at Walmart.

Hi Kelley and Hi Sharon! What a fun post. Kelley, we must be sisters in a past life!! I LOVE everything Celtic, in fact our entire family is going to see Celtic Sojourn next week and I can't wait. And Yeats ---oooooohhhh! However, like my other soul mate Christine, I have never had pumpkin rolls. I haven't even heard of them. Good luck with your writing and I am looking forward to having you on my blog.
Sharon, I love your blog :-) and I'm so happy we are all doing the HJBT together.
