My name is Heather.  I am the mother of two kids.  I live in Connecticut.  I wrote a book called Eat Your Feelings, which you can buy and makes an excellent hostess gift.  If you want funny recipes and stuff like that, go here.  This is for everything else.

I was born at West Point.  My father was in the army.  He received a Congressional Medal of Honor in Vietnam.  My mother is an artist from California.  They are no longer married to each other, but have learned to get along.  As a child we moved overseas, first to Tehran, Iran and then to Paris, France, and then back home to Katonah, New York.  I went to Colby College, which is a very good school, but only because I didn’t get into Brown.  I have an older brother and two younger sisters.

I lived in New York City longer than I’ve lived anywhere, but now we live in the woods.  I was worried I wouldn’t like it here, but it’s far more beautiful than I realized.

My husband is an actor.  Mostly, when we’re not working, we hang out with our kids, then put them to bed and have cocktails while we watch television.  La dolce vita!
