Heather Buchta

Author of the YA new release BEYOND THE BREAK


Just your normal Jesus-lovin and adventure-chasin kind of girl

Heather Buchta’s New Release


     Seventeen-year-old Lovette has two rules in life. One: no surfing. Not after her brother’s accident. Two: absolutely, no dating. And going into her junior year of high school, she’s pretty happy with that arrangement. She has friends, her church youth group, and God to fall back on when things get dicey. But after Jake Evans walks into her life, following these two simple rules gets a lot more complicated.
     Jake is the boy from Lovette’s childhood who grew up. Handsome and sweet, he unlocks the part of Lovette that wants nothing more than to surf the waves again. And as their relationship grows, she begins to question what it means to be faithful: to her family, to God, but mostly, to herself.

Hi! I'm Heather. I love sports, reading, and a good glass of whiskey.

Being kind is cool.

Brevity is hard.

If I send you a note on IG,

I swear I'm not sliding

into your DM's.

I just like people.

Oh, and Jesus is my everything.

Come along for the ride!

"Heather's writing is refreshing and funny without trying too hard, at least that's what she imagines I'd say.

If I were alive today, she'd definitely have an old man crush on me. Nothing like a good hyperbole to win over that girl's heart.

"Heather Buchta's book is not out yet, so these are just fillers. But let me say that she's written a titanic debut. Catch me if you can, but I'll be done with this book before you. From its inception to the departed last page, she takes you down a revolutionary road of teen angst and awkward first loves. Total eclipse of brilliance meets the beach. I can't speak for all of you, but I, for one, know that this boy's life will never be the same.
