About The Author

H. Leighton Dickson grew up in the wilds of the Canadian Shield, where her neighbours were wolves, moose, deer and lynx. She studied Zoology at the University of Guelph and worked in the Edinburgh Zoological Gardens in Scotland, where she was chased by lions, wrestled deaf tigers and fed antibiotics to Polar Bears by baby bottle! She has been writing since she was thirteen and pencilled her way through university with the help of DC Comics. She has three dogs, three cats, three kids and one husband. She has managed to keep all of them alive so far.

While she is now repped by Desiree Wilson of the Bent Agency, Heather began her career as an indie author with the Scifi/Asian fantasy series, RISE OF THE UPPER KINGDOM, along with Gothic thriller series, COLD STONE & IVY, and most recently, the award-winning DRAGON OF ASH & STARS: The Autobiography of a Night Dragon. She also writes for Bayview Magazine, speaks at book conventions and is a photoshop wizard when it comes to book covers.
