My name is Heather Hoyt.
I am mother of four children and a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I grew up in Utah and I am now living in Wyoming where my husband, Dillon, works as a park manager.
Some things about me:
- I LOVE to read.
- I also love family history. I even have a family history website, walkerboot.com.
- I write. Growing up, I first wrote poetry, then short stories, then novels. I’ve written six or seven novels in varying degrees of finished. I’m currently working on a nonfiction book as well. I majored in English in college (and added on philosophy as another major just for fun).
- I love photography too, which you can see at Edge of Shade.
- I am sort of a minimalist and I care more about function than appearances.
- I am chronically uncool. I am more likely to be respected than to be well-liked and popular.
- I love having conversations with all sorts of people, but this doesn’t happen often since I’m a mother to small children and I live outside a town of 250 people.
- I have nurtured a lot of interests in my life including but not limited to watching BBC shows, playing the piano and organ, cooking, baking, gardening, crocheting, calligraphy, rearrange my house, organizing, pretending I am handy with a power drill, building furniture, attempting to sew and mostly failing miserably, embroidery (but I don’t ever finish what I start), using a typewriter, designing websites, playing the penny whistle, speaking in public, sculpting, doodling, and analyzing literature.
- I struggle with geography and if you talk to me about locations, I glaze over and just nod and pretend I know what you are talking about.
- I was once a legal secretary and I was very good at my job.
- I enjoy being an adult and I love all the paperwork that comes with it.
- I believe that I am not a caricature of myself, and that who I am cannot fit into a list or an online profile.
- I also hate how the internet has degraded into social media and so I still maintain my own website even if it’s not very fashionable.
