I was born Heather Ross in 1945.  My father was Billy Ross, from Amelia and Me, and my mother was Peggy Waddell, a war bride from Greenock, Scotland.  She and my dad met in Scotland during the Second World War.


I live in North Bay, Ontario, with my husband Don.  We have two sons, four grandchildren, and two grand dogs. After 30 years of teaching, I retired and wrote Amelia and Me so my grandchildren would know their roots.  I also wanted to share the rich history of Harbour Grace, Newfoundland.


My second book, Under Amelia's Wing, is the sequel to Amelia and Me.  It will be released in May 2020. (Due to COVID-19, the release date has been moved to September 2020.)


I'm currently working on book 3 in the Ginny Ross Series.
