Heather grew up in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Western, North Carolina. She enjoyed writing stories and poems throughout childhood, but the responsibilities of being an adult distracted her from the desire to write for many years. Her love of writing was rekindled when she found a meaningful theme on which to focus-the love of Jesus. It started with devotional-style blogs on her personal website, but God has expanded Heather’s writing passion to Christian fiction through the creation process of Grace & Lavender. Heather currently lives just outside Winston-Salem, North Carolina, with her husband and three children, along with two cats, a dog, and a fish. Other than writing and spending time with her family, Heather enjoys singing, song-writing, and crafting.
