Heather C. Morris

Writing children’s books at the intersection of science and imagination!


Heather believes in the power of stories to inspire imagination and spark curiosity! She is an active member of SCBWI, the 12×12 picture book challenge community, and multiple critique groups. Her ghost story about her home state of Alabama was recently chosen for publication in the upcoming Haunted States of America anthology (Henry Holt) as part of a national SCBWI-sponsored contest. Last year, she was selected as a runner-up in the 2021 #PBChat contest, received an honorable mention in the #SpringFling kidlit contest, and published stories and poems in multiple arts journals and anthologies. She and her husband have three children and three pets and she’s always wished she could meet a gryffin – from a safe distance!
