Heather Osborne has been writing science fiction and fantasy all her life. Her short stories have been anthologized in Seasons Between Us (2021), Shades Within Us (2018), and The Sum of Us (2017). Her creative non-fiction has appeared in Swelling With Pride: Tales of Queer Conception and Adoption (2018).

Heather grew up in a family of nature-lovers. She’s an avid hiker, camper, and backpacker. In the winter, you’ll find her hitting the ski slopes. The Canadian wilderness has been a great inspiration for the settings in many of her short stories and novels. Heather and her wife have one son and three cats (an excellent ratio).

Heather earned her doctorate of creative writing from the University of Calgary in 2018. Since 2010, she has been an associate editor of Foundation: The International Review of Science Fiction. Heather teaches creative writing at the Alexandra Writer’s Centre.
