Biography

Heather is a screenwriter and small town fugitive. She escaped her rural roots for the big city by attending Ryerson University’s Radio & Television Arts program and the Canadian Film Centre’s Prime Time Television Writing program, which led to a career penning cartoons (Captain Flamingo, Iggy Arbuckle, Kid vs Kat, Total Drama Action, Sidekick, The Travels of Young Marco Polo, and Camp Lakebottom),and tween television dramas (Naturally Sadie and The Latest Buzz). Heather is also writing two YA novels: a thriller (PSYCHO SMART) and a dark fantasy (DEMONS DON'T DO LOVE). Neither is autobiographical. Mostly.

When she’s not writing books or screenplays, Heather blogs about writing craft and the writer’s life atwriteonsisters.com, and about cycling the world on a fold-up bike atbromptoning.com. She is also pursuing the preposterous goal of becoming a gymnast at thirtysomething.
