About The Author

Heather Anne Hunter is the daughter of the celebrated author, Bernice Thurman Hunter. She finished her mother's last two books posthumously to excellent reviews. Heather received an Honours B.A. in English from The University of Toronto and then attended McGill University for her Diploma in Secondary Education. A career teaching in a variety of socio-economic areas of Montreal and Toronto gave her the insight to write authentically about teen culture depicting with compassion and understanding youth who fall through the cracks of the education system. She writes for and about teenagers but anyone who suffered through young adulthood will surely relate to her gritty plots and real life characters. Her first young adult novel, Raviís Revenge, was a finalist for The INSPIRE Award at the Toronto International Book Fair in 2014. She is a member of CANSCAIP and CCBC.
