Heather is no stranger to trade publications as she has worked as both an editor and deputy editor of trade magazines which focused on the hairdressing industry and the care sector. She has also spent periods working as a freelance writer, specialising in women’s interest issues and inspiring real life stories.

Testing her creative talents in a new arena, she veered into television working as a TV producer with the BBC and ITV for more than ten years. During this time Heather made many hours of programmes, including children’s shows for both pre-school and the five-to-12-year-olds.

Heather said: “I look back fondly on my time in the BBC children’s department as one of the most creative and fun periods of my career so far. The ever-changing, re-inventive nature of children’s entertainment is hard to beat, which is why I’m so thrilled to be joining Toy World magazine and immersing myself into the toy industry as a whole. I really look forward to meeting as many of you as possible over the coming months.”

To get in touch with Heather, you can call her on 01442 840 305 or email her at
