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.

Of Darkness and Light by Heidi Eljarbo
"Enjoyable Story

I enjoyed this story full of interesting characters, mystery, insight into Norway during World War Two, and a glimpse at the world of fine art. "
Of Darkness and Light by Heidi Eljarbo

Soli smiled. “That means he painted strong contrast of light and dark.”
Rolf mumbled, “Kind of like this war. Light and dark—good and bad— interconnecting but widely divergent
