Welcome to my website.
Hi there. I’m Heather and I’m an indie author. You can find details of my books on this site, as well as the occasional post about my favourite subjects.
I’m passionate about rescue animals, especially dogs. My books aim to entertain and thrill, while also opening up the reader to some of the issues facing animals in the UK today. Animals are the best of us and when they’re put in peril, the tension is high. The Covert Animal Team, a group of vigilantes who feature in my adventure stories, will stop at nothing to get justice.
Readers often tell me that once they’ve read one of my books, they want to join the Covert Animal Team! Nothing would make me happier than if you choose to join them on their adventures. Start with the novella Puppies for Sale, in which the group is formed and have their first adventure together, saving both puppies and older dogs from the evil clutches of criminals who would harm them. Next, join them in the novel Forced to Run as they continue in their mission to save animals, this time from the often shady world of greyhound racing.
The team are based in Edinburgh, at their mysterious lock-up that’s in a secret location in the city. From there, they plan their missions. Gemma, a driven, unmanageable young woman, is often found on her treadmill or pacing about. Carly, a calm tech genius who struggles with a neurological movement disorder, is likely to be at her desk in front of her many screens. Suzanne, the youngest member of the group, might be found tending to any dogs at the lock-up, keen to learn all she can from the others. Add to this Benji, Carly’s kindly vet husband and Mary, worldly and cheerful older dog-sitter, and you have a disparate band of people all with one goal – to win justice for animals.
