Heather Cushman-Dowdee was the long-time creator of the comics: Hathor the Cowgoddess and Mama Is... Within a space of ten years she produced hundreds of comics, a daily blog, and wrote a few books, too. Her comics have been featured in Mothering Magazine, The Mother, Holistic Parenting, and Birthings, and in 2014, a comic was posted on UpWorthy.com and was later named one of that website's top five of the year.
These days Heather is writing novels under the name, H.D. Knightley. Her first YA book is called, Bright, and brings many of the same ideas into novel form, including a character that breastfeeds and wears her baby in a sling. It's the story of a girl, a bright city, the hidden stars, and what can happen when you tear it all down. Her second book, Fly, is a twisted retelling of the fairytale, The Light Princess, about a princess who has no gravity, a kingdom without water, and the surfer boy asks the Princess Amelia to matter. Both are available on Amazon in paperback or e-book form.
