Heather Mackey lives in Berkeley, California, with her husband, two children, and a demanding dog. She grew up in Southern Arizona, where her major childhood preoccupations were reading and swimming. Even now the memory of favorite books carries with it the faint smell of chlorine.
Heather went to school at Smith College where she chose a practical major in Classics and concluded it made good sense to graduate with no plan in mind. Since then she has lived in the San Francisco Bay Area for more than ten years, working as a writer and editor for local newspapers, magazines, and technology companies.
