You got a bookmark!

Hi there!

Lucky you, you found a Grounded bookmark and came to visit!


This is the site for all things having to do with Rosie, her psychic Seven, the Grounded series, and me—Heather Ordover.

There are many hats I wear beyond that of a young adult novelist. I write other things, talk about other things, and make other things too.

Take a look:

I’ll be signing books

Books will be available for purchase and signing at all locations.

I’ve been compiling research on the effects of things like knitting and doodling on the brain—because there finally is research! I’ve blogged about it at Cognitive Anchoring and am traveling around speaking and sharing the good news all over the place. If you have a local yarn store, a fiber arts guild, or a local bookstore that would be interested in hosting such a talk, please get in touch. I have a projector and I travel. And if you want to know when the book is coming out officially, enter your email here and we’ll ping you.
