About the author

Heather Hackett

<p>Heather is not just an author. She is also&nbsp;<strong>a poet, a traveler, a photographer, a musician, a free spirit, an adventurer, a thrill seeker, a cycling nut, a wife and a mother</strong>.&nbsp;</p><p>She has&nbsp;<strong>searched for meaning</strong>&nbsp;in our often insignificant and trivial lives across three continents, mostly in Asia, and found various forms of spiritual fulfilment, some very powerful and life-changing. She has experienced some awesome highs and some wretched lows, known scarcity and prosperity in not so equal measures, and&nbsp;<strong>learned how precious life really is.&nbsp;</strong></p><p>Her new book is a&nbsp;<strong>memoir of all her experiences, hilarious and pitiful</strong>, gained while dragging her sorry ass (and her two young kids) up and down the Himalaya, through the monsoons of Asia and along the bike paths of Europe.&nbsp;</p><p>Heather currently lives in Newcastle, Australia with her partner, Iain, and best furry friend, Lea, where she writes, cycles and drinks far too much coffee.&nbsp;</p>
