Backroads edited the overview of Heather Horrocks Tuesday, April 17, 2012.
An avid reader of romances and mysteries since childhood, Heather Horrocks likes to also draw from experience: she was a romantic comedy buff who owned her own video store and she read tons of Agatha Christie and Nancy Drew mysteries growing up (but she only bumps people off on paper). Raised by her shop-til-you-drop mother (Heather’s only an amateur) and pay-for-the-purchases oilman father, Heather lived overseas for her first seventeen years, attending schools in Colombia, Venezuela, London, Kuwait, and Iran.
She’s been a pianist since her Kuwait branch, and has taught in both Primary and Relief Society.
After years of writing after long days of medical transcriptions, Heather is delighted to turn her attention fully to her craft, and she loves sharing what she’s learned about life and writing, both in her books and in classes she gives.
