Author Heather Gordon has had a love for children’s books her entire life. Since becoming a mother, her desire to share curious and humorous stories encouraged the launch of her debut book, Does the Queen Fart?

Heather’s goal with this book was to open a lively and fun conversation with young children about the beauty and complexity of their bodies, even when they make funny noises.

With a successful career in television that has spanned two decades with Canada’s largest media outlets, including CHUM, Bell Media, and CBC, Heather is thrilled to now add children’s book author to her résumé. She lives with her husband—the novelist Ian Thornton—and their two children in Toronto.
