Born and raised in New Jersey, Heather Spergel spent her younger years performing on Broadway, in television commercials and playing the flute in regional bands. With an M.S. in Community Counseling and as a National Certified Counselor, Heather worked in the mental health field for a number of years before joining the family business in property management. Now a Chiropractor's wife, gluten-free, attachment parenting, creative, and busy mom of two children, Heather finds inspiration from both her youth and her kids. She created the Gabi Babaroni series about a spunky girl performing on stage and screen (closely mirroring her earlier experiences), and a fantasy adventure series called NiNi Spergelini about a boy, his sidekick cat Picaboo, and magical guitar. Her holistic line of books began with “How Many Feet in the Bed?” The pitter-patter of little feet keep the reader smiling as a family cuddles to sleep in the family bed. Heather also writes about a persnickety and persistent gluten monster pestering a young child as he discovers the road to becoming gluten-free in “Free To Be… Gluten-Free!” Look for future books about breastfeeding, bereavement, and other out of this world journeys. This Pathways to Family Wellness author continues to write and inspire those in the holistic and mainstream communities with her gluten-free explorations, parenting humor, and creative ideas.
