Born and raised in New Zealand, the highlight of Heather's childhood was the family sheep and cattle farm just north of Auckland. With reading and writing a big part of family life, she dreamed of becoming a writer, however work, travel and raising a family consumed many years after she settled in Queensland with her Australian husband. Her love and knowledge of farming life was strengthened with thirty plus years of living on the land in Queensland's Darling Downs, while at the same time working full time.
Now retired and living near Toowoomba, QLD, with her husband, dogs and chooks, Heather is finally able to fulfil her dream of writing. When not busy writing, Heather is in their large garden, minding her grandchildren, or bush walking and exploring the vast beauty of
Australia and New Zealand.
