Heather is the author of BECOMING JOSEPHINE coming from Plume/Penguin in 2014. She grew up a military brat and naturally became obsessed with travel, culture, and languages. She put her degrees to good use teaching high school French for nearly a decade before turning to full time writing and editing.
As a freelance editor, Heather spends oodles of time helping writers find their voice and hone their skills–something she adores. She may often be found Twittering helpful links, sharing writing advice and author interviews on her blog Between the Sheets, or teaching Novel Writing in her community. Another favorite haunt is RomanceUniversity.org, where she contributes to the Editor’s Posts. When not writing, Heather flexes her foodie skills and chases her young children. You may even catch her gobbling the odd bonbon.
