Heather Clark writes heartfelt middle-grade fiction, which brilliantly captures the experiences of contemporary pre-teen children within engaging and entertaining storylines.
Heather was a high school French teacher and also spent 15 years as a portrait photographer, which drove her desire to capture the unique beauty in every individual. She battled various retroactively diagnosed anxiety disorders from a young age, and also works with similar issues in her own children. She has a strong commitment to presenting neuro-diverse children as empowered, well-rounded characters in her fiction, believing that (as C.S. Lewis said), “We read to know we are not alone.”
She nearly died of a pulmonary embolism in 2014, which made her question how her anxious children would have dealt with her death, and this resulted in her writing LEMON DROP FALLS.
Heather and her family live in Utah, where they enjoy hiking the trails of Capitol Reef National Park.
