Heather Bennett, (author) a Michigan native, moved to Virginia at age twenty. As a mother of three, her love of storytelling has only grown over the years. For Heather, there’s nothing more rewarding than bringing about the laughter and joy of loved ones. When she’s not writing a new story idea in her notebook, you can find Heather playing with her children, enjoying time with friends, or drinking yet another cup of coffee. Being a mom is what Heather is most proud of.
