Heidi Croot received her first literary award at her Grade 8 graduation and was heart-broken because her father couldn’t be there to see her. She took an Honours BA in English from Western University, which taught her all about writing essays. This led her to a 35 year award winning career as a business writer, in the fields of technology, long-term-care, municipal government, and health and safety before she decided to hang out her free-lance shingle. Her creative writing has appeared in the Los Angeles Review of Books, Brevity, Writescape, Linea magazine, and a WCDR anthology. Presently she is working on a memoir, which she has recently sent to a professional editor.
