About Me

My life started almost two decades ago in "Broken Heart" Missouri, and it's there that I forever laid my heart. Whether it was a subconscious repercussion of being up-rooted at an early age, or if the state simply dominates in my bloodstream it's a fact that home truly is where my heart is.

We made the switch to Washington when I was at age 8 and I always held a resentment toward it, probably even now. My mother has seen her share of misfortune and at that point the only answer that made sense was going home, and her home was in little Federal Way, Washington. It was there that I lived for the next 10 years, but it was never home to me.

Because of this experience I have learned to value the ideals of "home" and "heart", and a lot of my inspiration comes from this. I also write a lot of poems about my personal relationships. I've actually been challenged by one of my beloved English teachers in high school to write about something other than "love and relationships" :) I took it to heart and I've been trying to branch out to other forms of poetry ever since.

While Navarro isn't the name on my birth certificate it's the one that surges through my veins. I am a Navarro by birth & heritage and since I grew up with a last name that didn't represent who I was, I understand the importance and pride that lies within a name. I am Heather Navarro by birth, Schulz by law, and Sanders by marriage, but Navarro is the name I will be publishing all my work under and how I wish to be known in the writing community.

During my high school experience I had the privilege of meeting my soul mate, rare and unlikely I know, but true. In the 9th grade we fell in love as friends, and in 11th grade we fell in love as more. It was a feeling that I had felt from the very beginning, and our relationship has since molded into the marriage we have today, and I know we will only continue to grow together. We got married on our senior prom, June 2nd, a very special day for us for more than one or two reasons. Our baby girl Summer Raine arrived on June 7th, 2008 and she has become my entire world, I could never fathom my life without her, I�m already sad to see how much she�s grown since she was born. It's hard being so young yet so advanced, and it�s especially hard dodging everyone's criticism but in the end it only serves to make us stronger.

I am a believer of God and I know he�s up there taking care of me and my loved ones from afar. I know I have a purpose in life and that everything happens for a reason, and I have been able to lean on my faith during times of sadness. Sometimes that�s all that gets me through even if I don�t see it at the time. I�m not the kind of person who forces my faith onto others, and I pride myself on being accepting of their beliefs and opinions, even if I disagree with them. I wish that no matter what a person believes - or disbelieves - that they are happy in life, and have their own sense of fulfillment.

I love animals, and I have a complete obsession with horses. I have done my best to keep them in my life during times where it's nearly impossible and someday I will own my own horse again. I also have a dear love for rodents and at the moment I own a standard grey chinchilla boy named Figlet. He's nothing short of precious! We�ve also recently added two beige chins to the family: A female named Apple and a male named Cider.

I'm not sure when I accepted that I was put on this earth to be a writer, but I have always had a love for the art. I'm currently doing research and asking millions of questions to those who know better and working towards finishing my novels and getting my work in print. Someday, I promise you, you will see it!
