HEALTH & WELLNESS
Heidi has written and compiled a few of the books in the Wish I Knew series. She created and curates the series, in honour of her mom, Margarete Sander. The books are created to help people through life’s transitions and she hopes the series will be a source of comfort, strength and inspiration.
ENVIRONMENT, TRAVEL & CULTURE
Heidi sold her first story in 1987 and has been writing professionally since then. She spent decades as a travel journalist and photographer (under her pseudonym, Katherine Jacob), traveling the world and writing hundreds of articles for publications such as the Globe and Mail and Backpacker to the Robb Report and Executive Traveler. Much of her writing concentrated on the natural world and outdoor adventure. During this time she also wrote a bestselling travel series and book proceeds contributed to several conservation projects.
