Heidi Eljarbo writes historical fiction. She grew up in a home filled with books and artwork and she never truly imagined she would do anything other than write and paint. She studied art, languages, and history, all of which have come in handy when working as a freelance writer, magazine journalist, and painter.
After living in Canada, six US states, Japan, Switzerland, and Austria, Heidi now calls Norway home. She and her husband have a total of nine children, thirteen grandchildren—so far—in addition to a bouncy Wheaten Terrier.
Their favorite retreat is a mountain cabin, where they hike in the summertime and ski the vast, white terrain during winter.
Heidi’s favorites are family, God's beautiful nature, and the word whimsical.

Book Two in the Soli Hansen Mysteries

Are you excited about the next installment in the Soli Hansen Mysteries? I know I am.
The manuscript has been read by several beta readers already.
Here are some of their comments:
"Another great one! I thought the characters, old and new were great and the intrigue was really there. Once again your descriptions were spot on, and I could visualize everything. Looks like Solvie will continue to solve Read more of this blog post »
