Writer in residence: Heidi Walkinshaw

After many years working in the corporate world, Heidi caved into an addiction to notebooks and pens, and can often be found scribbling notes throughout the various pages as she weaves ideas from the chaos of life with two children. She lives in Sydney with her husband and two small girls and loves spending time at the beach, exploring the city and surrounds and a good strong coffee.
