Photo Setting: Frog Hollow Farm B&B, Upper Bucks County, Pennsylvania

Heather Slawecki lived in four towns in Upper and Central Bucks County, Pennsylvania, including in an old farmhouse similar to her main character's. Most of her childhood memories stem from the setting ... beautiful preserved land, mysterious places, and historical landmarks where she could trace the steps of greats like Ben Franklin, William Penn, and George Washington. But some of her favorite memories are from her own adventures on foot or horseback. Often they led to hidden springs, walk-in caves, and even covered-up crime deep in the woods. All true inspirations behind the Element Mysteries.


Heather is a proud graduate of Central Bucks High School East and of Widener University where she holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree in English Literature. She began her writing career as a feature writer for the Bucks County Courier Times and has spent the last twenty-five years as an award-winning senior copywriter. She is busy working on her next novel.  

Heather currently lives with her husband, daughter, and two cats. She enjoys getting her hands dirty in the garden, whipping up gourmet meals (some winners and some losers) and volunteering in as many ways as possible.
