Heidi Jardine Stoddart is a children’s author currently based in Rothesay, New Brunswick with her husband. She is the author and illustrator of five books, including her most recent release Sea Glass Summer. She holds an MA in art education from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design and was an elementary school teacher where she grew up, in Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario.
Sea Glass Summer is Stoddart’s fifth publication with Nimbus Publishing. It is a children’s book which she wrote and illustrated telling the story of Molly, a young girl who longs for the summer to return her to her grandmother’s cottage where she can collect sea glass. The story stands on its own, but its themes are familiar to her past work: Back to the Beach, A Nothing-To-Do Day, East to the Sea, and Return to the Sea. Stoddart’s fans will surely enjoy her newest work which is a fantastic addition to her impressive profile.
