Heather Anne Talpa is a writer who lives in London, Ontario, Canada. She developed Tourette's syndrome, a nervous disorder, in elementary school and struggled with it for the rest of her youth and teen years. In April 2014, at the age of 28-years-old, Heather was brought to the lowest point of her journey and instead of giving up, she gave in and acted on a simple piece of intuitive advice to "just start loving herself" - advice that has changed her life. She kept an active blog throughout her entire journey to self-love, and today her posts make up the content for her book, "The Lighthouse: A Journey Through 365 Days of Self-Love." Heather currently still works as a receptionist in London, spreading light and love in her day-to-day life. She can be contacted by sending an email to her personal email address, email@example.com.
