Heather M. O’Connor is an author, editor and freelance writer based in Peterborough, Ontario.
Fast Friends, her picture book about making friends and inclusion, will be published by Scholastic Canada in June 2020.
Betting Game, Heather’s debut novel for teens, was published by Orca Books in October 2015. This action-packed Orca Sports novel throws an elite soccer player into the murky world of illegal gambling.
Heather also writes short stories, fantasy, historical fiction and nonfiction for adults and children.
Always an avid reader, she first tried her hand at writing in 2002 when invited to write three children’s books for Nelson Canada. That’s when the writing bug really sank its teeth into her. Heather started calling herself a writer. And a teacher. And an author.
An enthusiastic speaker and teacher, Heather enjoys sharing her love of reading and writing with children, teens and adults. She is available for:
– school and library visits
– keynotes and writer’s craft workshops
