About my work

Heather grew up wanting to be a writer, and then accidentally became a lucha libre wrestler aged 21. Since then she has launched herself fully in to a series of adventures, including writing feminist narratives on wrestling; and running an immersive cabaret show called I Need to Cher. This website brings together all of her nonsense using nice fonts.
