Heather Grace Stewart is a poet and journalist who writes fast-paced, humorous and touching romance novels. The Ticket, a romantic comedy inspired by a true story, became an International Kindle bestseller. The Ticket and her novel Strangely, Incredibly Good were Top Ten Finalists in the Tale Flick Discovery Contest where books are selected to be adapted to the screen.

Heather is the author of 19 works. Her books were traditionally published until 2016 when she decided to retain all rights and self-publish. She's now had 278,000 copies downloaded and sold in print to readers around the world and all five novels have been published by Tantor or Dreamscape Media as audiobooks. In October 2020, The Ticket was translated into French. In October 2021, Polish rights to her novels were sold in a nice five-book deal by Metamorphosis Literary and the books were translated into Polish audiobooks and e-books worldwide.

After receiving her BA (Honours) in Canadian Studies at Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario, Heather attended Montreal's Concordia University for a graduate diploma in Journalism. She worked as chief reporter of a local paper and associate editor of the national magazines Harrowsmith Country Life, Equinox and Canadian Wildlife before starting her own freelance writing and editing business, Graceful Publications, in 1999.

Heather believes educating girls around the world is the answer to many problems. Since 2008, she has donated more than half the proceeds earned from her poetry sales to Unicef in the area of Education and especially Girls Education, as well as to The Red Cross and Because I Am A Girl, and will continue to donate to this cause with a portion of proceeds from both her poetry and novel sales. Graceful Publications currently sponsors Miriam, 16, and her family on their farm in Bolivia through Plan International's Because I Am A Girl. 

In her free time, Heather loves to spend time with her husband and their teenager, take photos, practice yoga, inline skate, garden, bake bread, dance like nobody's watching, and sample craft beer--usually not at the same time.
