We are two seasoned travellers. We live and travel abroad more than 5 months a year

She discovered her writing muse in elementary school after winning a city-wide writing contest.  So when she grew up, Heather Rath worked as a journalist, editor of a weekly newspaper and a monthly business magazine before becoming head of communications for North America for a  multi-national company. 

She edited, and contributed to, two anthologies of Canadian southwest Ontario writers.  Her award-winning writing has been published widely over the years in various publications.  She is a member of CAA (Canadian Authors Association), CANSCAIP (Canadian Society of Children’s Authors, Illustrators & Performers), and Crime Writers of Canada

Besides writing, her favourite pastimes are first, family, and then travel. She invites you to learn more at: https://www.heatherrath.net/
