Born Heather Graham on March 15, 1953, she grew up in
Miami-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. After the birth of her third child, Pozzessere decided she couldn't afford to go to work anymore.  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, she has written more than 100 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-plus 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, the Horror Writers Association (of which she is a former Vice President), and has received the Thriller Writer's Silver Bullet for charitable enterprises.
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. She is the founder of the Slushpile players and Slushpile band. 
In November 2016, it was announced that Pozzessere would co-author
Chad Michael Murray in writing his second novel titled "American Drifter". It's due to be released in November 2017.  Family
