A story began when various friends suggested that Heather write about her life's adventures including her father's clandestine playboy lifestyle. Well, Heather did not know much about her absentee father's lifestyle, but she knew her own. Several writing groups gave her the support and inspiration needed to gain momentum on writing stories about her experiences.

It has been a journey for her to transition from writing factual reports to writing creative nonfiction. She has gone on to write various tales of her adventures and mishaps.
