Online PR News – 28-June-2014 – Ann Arbor, MI – Well-known author Heather McPherson has long been an established name in the literary community, and has earned the recognition and respect of her peers with the release of the Dr. Bob book series. Now a sought-after professional on the national lecture circuit, Heather McPherson’s star is on a meteoric rise, promising to land her even more success and accolades throughout the course of her career.

Heather McPherson has recently been nominated for a local literature award, one provided to local writers who have made a significant and lasting contribution to the world of literature over the course of the year. Her latest Dr. Bob Release, titled Dr. Bob and the Alley Rat Gang, has become a popular literary hit not only in the Midwest, but also in certain parts of Europe and Asia, and is quickly solidifying her as one of the most exciting writers to have come out of Ann Arbor in recent memory. Heather McPherson is one of five candidates for the award, which has been given out to outstanding authors journalists for over 40 years.

The local literary award is designed to honor professional writers who have created tour de force work over the course of the past year. Past winners include an impressive and well-respected list of professional journalists, magazine feature writers, local poets and others whose work has made a positive and inspirational impact on the local community. Heather McPherson is honored to once again be considered for the award, an honor she took home over four years ago. She continues to make her mark on not only the local community, but also the broader world of literature; someone known for brilliant and memorable plot-driven narratives that feature some of the most well-known and complex characters to hit the scene in the last decade.

Heather McPherson has never sought any accolades with her work, though she has been considered for multiple literary honors throughout what is now becoming an extensive authorial career. She lives for creative expression, and for providing inspiration and hope to anyone considering a career in what has become an intensely competitive field.

Heather McPherson, as well as her two young children, will be present at the award ceremony, which is scheduled to take place next month. Sponsored by three local publications, a popular local restaurant and philanthropists throughout Ann Arbor, the awards gala promises to feature some of the most successful, impactful and inspirational young talents in the local literacy community, and will honor professional accomplishments in the fields of fiction, nonfiction, journalism, copyediting, publishing and more.

Heather McPherson has worked hard to achieve success as a professional author. Originally in pursuit of a teaching career, she had never realized how powerful or important her writing would become. The Dr. Bob character, she says, began as the scribblings of a highly caffeinated and stressed out college student, one simply looking for a bit of catharsis during a hectic final exam week. Since then, Heather McPherson has launched herself into one of the most-recognized and inspired literary minds to come out of the state of Michigan, someone who has provided inspiration and entertainment to thousands, perhaps even millions, across the globe.
