  Heather E. Schwartz
Professional/Personal Overview
  I (heart) writing for kids! With more than 35 nonfiction children's titles to my name, there's nothing I can't cover. Credits include bios on today's hottest celebs (think Ariana Grande, Austin Mahone, and Miley) as well as books on science, history, social media, and other educational topics.

Learn more about me at www.heathereschwartz.com - and find out about my very first celebrity interview. (Teaser: I was just a kid myself at the time!)
