Heather Bowhay lives in Bellingham, Washington with her husband, Dan, their two children, Dawson and Laci, and their three cats, Lyon, Maci, and Tyger. She graduated from WWU with her teaching certificate and has found that substitute teaching gives her the best balance: time for family, exercising, cooking, reading, and of course, writing. Guest teaching in different classrooms allows her to promote a fun learning environment but without the lesson planning. She loves cookie dough ice cream, Thai food, and the Denver Broncos.
Amethyst is her first novel in the Guardian series, followed by the sequel, Linked, and now Dentelle which was just published August 5, 2013. They are all available in eBook format.
