As well as being a recognized playwright, she is the author of two novels, "The Mystery on Skull Island" - A young reader book and "Beyond the Mist", a paranormal set in the 1800's in and near the historic towns of Lunenburg and Mahone Bay. Heather's very proud of the fact that this novel was awarded Honorable Mention in the prestige Writers' Digest Competition of North America.
She was born in Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, the eldest of three children. Her love of stories began at a very early age when she would sit by her grandfather on his porch swing and listened enthralled as he wove tales about the "olden days" in Lunenburg County. Heather discovered the joy of books at a very early age. Along with the reading came the overwhelming passion to write, which she has never lost. She married her soul mate Bruce and together they have a son, daughter and two grandsons. They live in West Northfield, a charming community on the South Shore of Nova Scotia.
