Originally from Garden City, New York, Heather Cumiskey is the daughter of a television veteran and a fearless homemaker. With three older brothers, she often turned to the teen book section in her town library in search of the answers when it came to girl stuff, boys, and coping with parents.
She received her Bachelor of Arts in English at State University of New York at Albany where she also studied dance and choreography. For more than two decades, she has worked as an advertising and marketing copywriter.
When she’s not writing, she lends her legs, lungs, and heart in helping athletes living with disabilities compete in mainstream races. I Like You Like This and I Love You Like That is her first duology for young adults.
