Dorothy J. Heydt is a U.S. author of science fiction and fantasy. She lives on the U.S. West Coast and is an active participant in the Usenet newsgroups rec.arts.sf.written and rec.arts.sf.fandom, and in science fiction fandom in general. She is the originator of the Eight Deadly Words, and other pithy fannish quotes.

A linguist, she invented one of the first widely used Vulcan conlangs in 1967 for a Star Trek fan fiction series. Its words were picked up and used by other fan fiction authors such as Claire Gabriel. One term, ni var, meaning an art form in which two contrasting aspects of a subject are compared, is still used on Enterprise, as the name of a Vulcan ship.

She has written numerous short stories and two novels; she sometimes writes as "Katherine Blake." Many of her stories appear in collections edited by Marion Zimmer Bradley.

While not one of the founding members of the Society for Creative Anachronism, she did participate in the early years and helped establish important elements of the ceremonies, such as the "Oath of Fealty" used in peerage ceremonies.
