"Reading Heidi's work is an invitation to experience the wonder around us."
Lucy Adkins, author of "One Life Shining: Addie Finch, Farmwife" (Pudding House Press)
"Heidi's poetry takes you out on a limb - but her words won't
let you fall, instead lifting you with wit and the steel of truth."
Becky Breed, Educator
"Depth of meaning, precision of language; borne on a foaming
tide of words - Heidi’s work is a lovely bundle of contemporary
poetry that floats you across America’s heartland so
successfully that you are left longing to live there and see such
things as she does"
Ian Barker, Poet and Author

“With an ear for sound and an eye for shifting
realities, Heidi's poems are beautiful in the
mouth and revelatory in the heart. Rarely
does one juxtapose grace and pain with as
much precision as she does, utilizing the
smallest details of the average day. Heidi's
poetry is a doorway to the Midwest, and a
road map to the core self.”
"Heidi has exceedingly beautiful ears."
Buddy Wakefield, Performance and slam poet
