Heather Lockman, born and raised in Seattle, is a fourth-generation Northwesterner. Her essays and articles have appeared in a variety of national publications, including American Heritage, National Geographic Traveler, and Architectural Digest. She once spent two years rescuing and restoring a landmark Northwest pioneer home and opening it to the public—an experience that provided the backdrop for her first novel, The Indian Shirt Story. Heather lives in a restored Craftsman bungalow near Puget Sound with her husband and a dog named Woody. She cooks at the local soup kitchen, conducts tours of the Washington State Governor’s Mansion, and—in defiance of Northwest stereotype—listens to country music. Mostly, though, she writes.

It’s going to be a tough summer for Bess in the free-thinking, left-leaning, soy-eating, fish-loving town of Port Heron this year.
