I’m a mom, writer, Christian, avid reader, music-lover, movie-goer, Bunco-player, lover of plays and shows, occasional sports fan, I knit and sew … and those just scratch the surface.
Why ‘Calluna?’ My real name is Heather, and Calluna is the scientific name for the plant Heather. Back when I first started blogging it was a convenient name that allowed me to be anonymous yet secretly true to self also.
Early in my career I was a newspaper reporter. My career took a different turn and over the last decade I’ve had awesome opportunities to write for really cool places like Target, NASA, the Army and a world-renown biotechnology research institute.
I co-authored the book Bold They Rise: The Space Shuttle Early Years, 1972-1986, which came out in 2014.
I spend most of my time working, volunteering, or doing things for and with my sons.
My blog is my think pad; it’s where I sort out how I really feel about something. If we were to have lunch sometime, the things in my blog are the kinds of things we might talk about. I enjoy sharing here about my kids, my faith, books I’m reading and pretty much anything else that I have something to say about.
Thanks for stopping by!
