From Chicken Soup for Every Mom's Soul

Who Is Heather McNamara?

What began for Heather as a part-time freelancing job in 1995 turned into a full-time job as editorial director for Chicken Soup for the Soul Enterprises in 1996. She coauthored Chicken Soup for the Unsinkable Soul and Chicken Soup for the Sister’s Soul.

“I feel so fortunate to have a job that brings joy to so many people,” Heather says. Her love of literature grew from her third-grade teacher Mrs. Lutsinger, who read to the children every day after lunch.

Today Heather owns her own home in a rural outpost of the San Fernando Valley, where she enjoys the panoramic view of the valley, her garden and her four dogs—all adopted strays. Her oldest dog, an abandoned “junkyard” dog, continues to patrol her yard, despite the fact that “he is blind in one eye and doesn’t hear so well. But he still has a good sniffer,” Heather proclaims.

Heather and her husband Rick are expecting their first child in July 2005.
