About the Author

Originally from Northwest Pennsylvania, Heather currently resides in Kilgore, Texas with her husband, Derek, and their beloved pets. She earned a BA in Media Production from the University of Oklahoma and enjoys working full-time as a graphic designer for a local advertising agency.

Growing up with a rich imagination, Heather always sought a creative outlet, be it in the form of painting & drawling, dance, performing in community theater or creating amateur film/video projects. Though she never dreamed of being an author, it was only a matter of time before Heather discovered a knack for writing stories.

She began writing her first book in 2005, but her publishing experience began in 2008 as an illustrator with Lily Ruth Publishing, providing interior and cover art for three books. In June of 2011, Heather independently released her first novel, ”The Nameless World” (middle-grade fiction) followed by three more releases, “A Recycled Christmas” (early reader), “Ryan’s Bike” (chapter book) and "The Little Green Umbrella" (early reader). In 2012, Heather took her publishing journey full-circle when Lily Ruth Publishing took interest in one of her early reader stories and offered a publishing contract for "The Best Basketball Player Ever."

"It's kind of funny to look back on my life so far and see where my path has led me. In high school or college, if you had asked me where I saw myself in ten years, my answer would not have been 'I want to be a writer,' and yet, here I am. I'm just excited to have the opportunity to share my stories with people. Even more, I'm thrilled to know that people actually enjoy them. I'd say that is the biggest reward of it all."
