Heather Laura Clarke is a freelance journalist whose work regularly appears in many Atlantic Canadian newspapers and magazines, including The Chronicle Herald, Metro, Hub Now, Business Voice, Dugger’s, Progress, East Coast Living, Bedford Magazine, and Southender Magazine. She also has several corporate clients.
She graduated with a Bachelor of Journalism Honours (BJH) degree from the University of King’s College in 2005, and began working as a reporter/editor at The Daily News. She was based in the Entertainment department, but also wrote for the News, Homes, Lifestyles, and Sports departments.
When the newspaper was shut down in 2008, Heather merged her writing talents with a new opportunity in video production, project management, and creating SEO (search engine optimization) strategies.
Heather began her freelance career while on maternity leave in 2010, and loves being able to continue writing professionally while staying at home with her young children. She lives in Truro with her husband, her two-year-old son, and her baby daughter, and chronicles her day-to-day parenting adventures on her blog, Laptops to Lullabies.
