    PEEK BEHIND THE CURTAIN

    Life

    I've lived for travel and traveled to live but I call Perth, Australia home. I'm an unapologetic suburbanite, complete with partner in crime, tiny minions and a golden retriever.

    work

    As a working writer, I've worn many hats and I balance creative writing with other, more financially robust, word-related undertakings. I consult on brands, content strategy and digital content creation. I'm also a some-time university lecturer and tutor - flitting in and out of academia like a sparrow seeking respite from a hot, dry wind.

    SUPPORT FOR MY WORK

    dr Laurie Steed

    Author, You Belong Here

    "Many writers write or recollect. A precious few can dream upon the page. Many of Heather's

    stories begin on a small canvas, only to unfurl into the greater

    world. The fictional world of Heather Delfs is one of hidden depths and clever, subtle

    narrative subversion."

    dr Kate noske

    Editor, Westerly

    "Heather’s writing shows great subtlety and fluidity of

    expression. She has a

    wonderful capacity for nuance and her phrasing is both delicate and rich with a

    shifting subtext."
