Erin Heitzmann was raised in Bismarck, North Dakota, and after graduating from high school, spent the next several years in a variety of different places, from as far away as Japan, and as exotic as Hawaii. Erin finally chose Montana as her home, where she met and married her husband Dean. She and Dean live in the beautiful Bitteroot Valley near Missoula, where they have raised five wonderful children, the youngest of which is still at home. Erin served for two years as a Kindergarten teacher at a private Christian school, and remained on staff at the school as a volunteer until their last child started first grade. Erin then returned to college to pursue a nursing degree, and graduated with honors from Montana State University in 2006. Erin currently serves as the administrator of an assisted living facility in Missoula, and has discovered that working with the elderly population is both her calling and her passion. She writes for the sheer pleasure of it, and hopes that you enjoy reading 'Rebecca's Redemption' as much as she has enjoyed writing it.
