Heather wrote Head First Physics almost by accident, following an initial pitch for co-authorship of a different title. Her physics degree definitely helped, together with a long interest in how people learn that stemmed from years of chess and cricket coaching.

She currently trains medical writers as part of the L&D team at a medical communications agency. Her own work has included writing support on the Brain health: time matters in multiple sclerosis policy report and campaign and her own research e.g. on whether pharmaceutical industry research is posted as preprints.
