Heather was born in Utah but, as the daughter of an oil man, grew up traversing the globe. She is grateful for the opportunities she had to swim beaches from South America to the Middle East, climb the steps of the Roman Coliseum, and walk the same path Jesus trod in Jerusalem.
She lived in the Middle Eastern region for several years, attending junior high and high school on opposite sides of the Arabian/Persian Gulf (the gulf name changed depending on whether she was living in Kuwait or Iran, and her mail had to reflect that). In 1967, while her father remained in Kuwait to work for the summer, Heather, her mother Loya, and sisters Skye and September flew home via the unexpectedly blacked-out Cairo airport, and their plan took off mere moments before the airport was bombed to begin the Six-Day War (and prompting her father to send a panicked Telex to Rome to make sure they arrived safely).
Though she worked for years as a secretary and medical transcriptionist, and owned several businesses (her favorites being Adventureland Video and Word Garden Press), she has always wanted to write and share what she has learned. She loves movies, and her favorite is Enchanted (and she throws Enchanted parties where friends will be served dinner and then watch the movie, wearing lots of dollar-store bling and feather boas).
Heather has kind of a split personality--she has always read diversely and writes the same way. She meets monthly with her conspiracy group (you know, two or more people plotting together) to plot an entire book in a day (they’ve done thirty-five so far).
Heather strives to write entertaining tales that usually have a variation on the message of forgiveness. Especially in Women and Men Who Knew The Mortal Messiah, she shares stories of Jesus and the healing power of His Atonement. She is now beginning work on stories of women from the Old Testament, Women Who Knew the Great Jehovah.
When she’s not writing, Heather enjoys spending time with her family, volunteering at her church, playing the piano, and watching good movies and reading good books--through which she can travel again to exotic locales or even through time to other incredible eras.
Heather lives in Utah with her hunky husband Mark and their two youngest sons.
