Nanette Heffernan is a children’s book author whose goal is to make the world a better place for children whether by making them laugh or addressing environmental issues. Her debut book is Earth Hour: A Lights Out Event For Our Planet.

Nanette spent most of her professional career as a sales and marketing executive until making the decision to become a fulltime writer. But she didn’t entirely leave the business world behind. Today she’s using her contacts and skills to expand literacy programs to schools all over the world.

When she isn’t writing or volunteering for organizations dear to her heart such as SCBWI, Master Gardeners, CERT, and Girl Scouts, you can find her outdoors. She has an insatiable desire for hiking, camping, backpacking, snowshoeing, gardening and walking in the rain! She lives in Northern California with her family, Koda the dog, George the cat, eight chickens (all named Companion), and the cast of characters from her stories, all of whom she chatters with daily.
