Screenwriter, Game Writer, Novelist
Heather graduated from Ryerson University’s Radio & Television Arts program in 2001, and the Canadian Film Centre’s Prime Time Television Writing program in 2005, and a month later landed her first writing gig on YTV’s cartoon comedy CAPTAIN FLAMINGO.
After many years writing television shows for kids and teens that air all over the world (Cartoon Network, Disney, Netflix, etc), she began working as a writer and story editor on Bloom Digital Media’s first game, the award-winning LGBTQ+ visual novel LONGSTORY. Heather went on to write more episodic mobile games for Jam City and Glu Mobile, and was the Lead Writer on ZenFri’s narrative VR game THE LAST TAXI (coming 2021). She then returned to Bloom Digital as the Narrative Designer of the company’s second visual novel, LATER DATERS. Currently, Heather is collaborating with Bloom on two new games, and writing an interactive horror novel. She promises not to get the slasher horror and dating sims mixed up.
When she’s not writing screenplays or games, Heather blogs about cycling the world on a folding bike at bromptoning.com. She also coaches the Trampoline Club at Ryerson University.
Heather is a member of the Writers Guild of Canada.
