Originally from Kilmarnock, Scotland, Heather is an author and writing and yoga teacher based in Greenville, where she lives with two of her three children, a pair of Labrador-mix dogs, a set of bagpipes, and a Royal Enfield motorcycle. Her fiction and creative nonfiction are published in a variety of periodicals in the US and the UK. She likes to explore the connection — or disconnection — between characters and the natural environment in her writing. Through yoga and meditation, she practices deepening her connection with whatever environment she finds herself in, on and off the mat. Her first novel, The Thorn Tree, will be published in July, 2014.
When not at work, you can find Heather tromping or riding over the hills near home, and, when she can get away with it, on the other side of the Atlantic.
