Heather Justesen

For fans of:Marcia Lynn McClure, Rachael Anderson, Becky Wade

Heather Justesen spent hours every day with her nose in a book long before she could read. She grew up in the heart of rural Utah where there was plenty of time and space for reading and daydreaming. After attending Snow College, she transferred to Southern Utah University, where she met her husband, Bill, and received a BA in English Literature. While living in Utah Valley after they both graduated, they foster parented fifteen children, and Heather worked for the newspaper and played in her garden. She now lives in her hometown of Fillmore, Utah, where she and her husband own a computer business, run on the volunteer ambulance service, and raise a wild mix of cats, dogs, chickens, geese, ducks, guineas, and one tom turkey. Once in a while she still finds time to play in the garden. Heather's prior novels include The Ball's in Her Court, Blank Slate, and Rebound, and her newest title, Family By Design, will be released in January, 2012.
