About the Author


Heidi & Jon

Heidi is the youngest of five kids. She and her husband, Jon live in Kalamazoo, Michigan – just a short drive from Alamo where she grew up. She now owns the family woods that are depicted in Chasing North Star. Her two sons, Tyler and Phillip, are doing great despite being raised by a mother with no formal training.

Embracing all that West Michigan has to offer, Heidi can often be found golfing at her favorite golf course located in her backyard or  hanging with her family in town and anywhere along the Lake Michigan shoreline. She remains connected to her siblings and is especially close to her sisters who also live in the area. Michael (Mickey) moved away soon after graduation and currently lives in Seattle, Washington.

Heidi has worked in the media world all her adult life – including time at WWMT. She still works in the marketing and advertising arena, and can often be found working at her favorite golf course. She is also a contributing writer for Women’s LifeStyle of Greater Kalamazoo.
