Heather Kirk is busy writing a new book for young people at present, so she does not have time for some of her other, more visible activities like teaching creative writing or giving booktalks. Heather, the author of two teen novels published by Napoleon (Warsaw Spring and A Drop of Rain), is working on a book about the must successful passive-resistance movement of the twentieth century. For those who would like to SEE Heather doing something, this painting of Heather by her friend Indra Sharma, a fine poet and painter, living in Elmvale, Ontario shows Heather THINKING. Heather is seen from behind. The autumnal landscape represents Heather's birthsign of Libra which reaches its zenith in the autumn.
