A Bit About Me

Heidi M. Thomas grew up on a working ranch in eastern Montana, riding and gathering cattle for branding and shipping. Her parents taught her a love of books, and her grandmother rode bucking stock in rodeos. She followed her dream of writing with a journalism degree from the University of Montana.

Heidi is the author of the award-winning “Cowgirl Dreams” novel series and Cowgirl Up: A History of Rodeo Women. Novels Seeking the American Dream and Finding True Home are based on her mother who emigrated from Germany after WWII. A children’s book, The Secret of the Ice Castle & Other Inspirational Tales, has recently been released.

She makes her home in North-Central Arizona where she is also a freelance editor. She is a member of Arizona Authors, Professional Writers of Prescott, and Women Writing the West.
