About the Author
A Cave Diver and prolific author, Jill Heinerth is an explorer. For over twenty years, her curiosity and photographic skills have given us a tantalizing peek at a breathtaking underwater world few will ever experience. Best known as a pioneering technical diver, Jill combines a mastery of underwater technology with a formal Fine Arts education to produce artistic documentation of the natural environment above, below and inside our planet. Jill's credits include National Geographic, Discovery, History Channel, Nippon TV, BBC, PBS and many others. Hollywood directors call on her to produce difficult underwater scenes and international magazines look to her to document extreme environments with digital technology. Jill is an inaugural member of the Women Divers Hall of Fame and has been acclaimed as a Living Legend in Sport Diver magazine. Ms. Heinerth is the 2011 winner of the Wyland ICON award, an honor she shares with such notables a Jacques Cousteau, Dr. Sylvia Earle and Robert Ballard. Born in Canada, Jill lives with her husband, Robert, in North Florida, where she starts most days with a refreshing swim in the clear water of her local spring.
