Heather Graham Pozzessere (b. March 15, 1953 in Florida) is a best-selling American writer, who writes primarily romance novels. She also writes under her maiden name Heather Graham as well as the pen name Shannon Drake.

Pozzessere is not related to actress Heather Graham, although she has worked as a Shakespearean actress.


Pozzessere grew up in Dade County, Florida. She married Dennis Pozzessere shortly after her high school graduation. After high school she went on and earned a degree in theater arts from the University of South Florida. She spent several years after that working in dinner theater, singing backup vocals, and bartending.cite web | last = | first = | authorlink = | coauthors = | title = Biography | work = | publisher =Heather Graham Website | date = | url =http://www.eheathergraham.com/heatherbiography1.html | format = | doi = | accessdate = 2007-02-08 ] After the birth of her third child, Pozzessere decided she couldn't afford to go to work anymore.cite web | last = King-Gamble | first = Marcia | authorlink = | coauthors = | title = Interview with Heather Graham | work = | publisher =Romantically Yours | date = February 2005 | url =http://www.theromancewriterslife.com/romanticallyyours/2005/ry_002.html

] She chose to stay at home, and, to fill her time, began to write horror stories and romances. After two years, in 1982, she sold her first novel, "When Next We Love".

In the years since then, Pozzessere has written over one hundred novels and novellas. These novels run the gamut of the romance genre, from historical fiction to category, from romantic suspense to time travel, and from vampire fiction to Christmas stories. She has been the launch author for Dell's Ecstasy Supreme line, Silhouette's Shadows line, and for Harlequin's mainstream brand, Mira Books. Her books have been published in twenty languages. Romance Writers of America presented her with the 2003 Lifetime Achievement Award. She is a member of Mystery Writers of America, International Thriller Writers, and Novelists Inc.

Pozzessere is a founder of the Florida chapter of the Romance Writers of America, and since 1999 has hosted the annual "Romantic Times" Vampire Ball for charity. In 2006, she hosted the first Writers for New Orleans on Labor Day, with workshops and a dinner theater event to benefit the city and the libraries. Labor Day of 2007 made it an annual event.

Pozzessere is a certified scuba diver. She and her husband live in Florida. They have five children.
