Heather Cash Morris

Writer, scientist, lover of science and literature

I was raised in Huntsville, AL and proudly call the Rocket City home. I am a member of SCBWI and the 12×12 picture book challenge community, and I am currently enrolled in a Highlights Foundation children’s book writing course. Additionally, I am a regular contributor to the online magazine Red Tricycle’s Spoke Network, and I am a member of Huntsville’s writing and spoken word community, Out Loud HSV. Before writing for children, I worked as a research scientist for a NASA contractor, studied biochemistry in graduate school in Texas, spent six months living abroad in London, and briefly taught math to foreign exchange students in Germany. My husband and I are parents to three children (ages 5-12), and I find equal delight in reading books out loud to my kids or curling up with an Agatha Christie novel at the end of the day.
