I Hate Piñatas

My book is available February 3, 2015.

Pinatas Cover2:1:14

Book Description.

Heart surgery doesn’t happen in a vacuum. This is what Heather Maloy learned first-hand when her son, Colman, was diagnosed in utero with a combination of congenital heart defects which are fatal without surgical intervention. I Hate Piñatas is a compelling story of hope and strength that vacillates between heartbreaking and outrageously funny as Maloy takes you through what three heart surgeries in three years looked like for one family.

Author’s Note: I Hate Piñatas is not an inspirational book, but rather a true and honest account of what we went through as a family. In my quest to keep it real, there are curse words contained within the story. However, it’s my hope that this book will leave you feeling inspired.


Available in paperback and e-book on Amazon.

  1. Heather – I am a childhood friend of your Dad and your Aunt Robbie and my sister and I are named after your grandmother – Billie Maloy. I LOVED your book. I read it while on a cruise recently and I am sure people wondered why I was sometimes laughing and sometimes crying out loud! Thank you so much for sharing Colman’s story with the world. I gave it a 5 stars on Amazon! Love, Shirley
