From the mysterious county of Cornwall, my name is Heidi and I live there with a husband and a gathering of feline friends.  I love to write, illustrate and am generally untidy but try really hard not to be.  I probably watch way too many movies which may well be an addiction.  I also worry about the deteriorating state of the planet, but then maybe the flesh-eating zombie apocalypse will sort out the over-population, so things will be all right in the end.
