Use photos, videos and compelling stories virtually to attract followers, build relationships, gain clients and make sales! Join panelists Heather M. O’Connor, Mitch Sanker and Lisa Carnwith as they share their storytelling secrets.
Heather M. O’Connor is an award-winning freelance writer, editor and author. Betting Game, her debut novel with Orca Books, was published in 2015. She also writes short stories, fantasy and historical fiction.
Heather knows all about warming up a keeper. Three of her kids played keep for rep teams. In 2006, after 15 years on the sidelines, the devoted soccer mom bought some cleats and joined a team. She plays defence, like Jack. Her biggest thrill while writing Betting Game was touring the Toronto FC Training Ground.
The busy mother of five (and grandmother of two) lives in Whitby, Ontario with her family and her goofy Vizsla, Otto.
