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.

schools, book clubs, and church groups.
