Heather Peck

Sub-genre: , ,

Heather Peck has spent most of her working life in agriculture, both in government service and as a hands-on farmer. This resulted in a wide variety of experiences, from managing the UK emergency response to the Chernobyl accident to breeding both sheep and alpacas commercially. She has been involved in international negotiations, pesticide legislation, food quality and animal welfare.

After leaving government service she chaired an NHS Trust, then volunteered in Citizens Advice and the Witness Service before Covid changed everything and she combined her NHS and agricultural background by training as a Covid vaccinator.

She lives in Norfolk between the Broads and the sea, with her partner Gary and a menagerie of 2 dogs, 2 cats, 2 hens and a rabbit. The first in her Norfolk Mysteries series was published in 2021.
