Heather is an author, digital artist and an independent film maker based in S. East England. Heather has always had a passion for writing, which was greatly encouraged when as a young girl she won a young author award for her short story and was invited to the annual young author’s conference in her home state of Maine.
Despite her love for writing, it remained a hobby for a number of years as she went on to study first psychology for her B.A. and then Buddhist Studies for her M.A.. That all changed however in 2012, when Heather decided to focus for the first time on her passion as a writer and began to work with screenwriting mentor, Chris Soth, (screenwriter of the movie Firestorm), on her first feature script ‘The Inbetween’.
In the autumn of 2012, Heather joined Film Colchester, where she discovered a new passion for writing and producing short films. Through the connections she made there, Heather spent the next year writing and producing four short films including, ‘Nothing Without Desire’, ‘No Time’, ‘Moments’ and ‘A Soft Spot’. Her film ‘No Time’ was the winner of the Signals Media 25th Anniversary Film Challenge.
