Reader Views 5 Star Review. Text reads: An unrelenting page-turner. Heather Texle combines a thrilling, non-stop, action-packed blend of space opera adventure and sci-fi murder mystery, to tell the story of a well-trained detective, now-turned fugitive in a twisty homicide case.

Reader Views gives On Impulse 5 Stars!

“...'On Impulse' features an outstanding crime story that is both intriguing and complex. Readers
are invited to experience the protagonist's roller coaster ride of emotions that sends her into risky
and adrenalizing voyages. Her trauma is portrayed with exceptional sensitivity, and readers will
find themselves rooting for her even at the helm of breaking the law. The interplay between
planets, the almost-human interaction with technological characters, and the touching scenes
combine to facilitate an unforgettable adventure, developed with prose that crafts every sentence
until it beats to a rhythm of its own.
As the mystery disentangles, explosive mysteries emerge, and you won’t believe the ending. “On
Impulse” is conclusively a winner in the sci-fi murder mystery category, and an accomplished
surefire must-read, fit for readers of all ages."

Hyder & Howe Reunion

   I spent the weekend of April 29, 2023 attending the Hyder & Howe Reunion in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Elicia Hyder took me under her wing as a mentee last year, and I was so excited to give her a copy of On Impulse.
   The event was a full night of hilarious games, trivia, and bonding with fellow readers. The next morning, a group of us enjoyed breakfast at Tupelo Honey. If you're also an Elicia Hyder fan, then you know what a bucket list item that was. And if that wasn't enough, I even met a few people who had read my book! 
   A big thank you to authors Elicia Hyder and Violet Howe for hosting this event and showing us all such a great time!
