Heidi Connolly is an author, medium, intuitive coach and spirit-minded musician. After graduating Harvard University, she became a professional musician, worked as a corporate trainer in human resources, and went on to become the owner of Harvard Girl Word Service, a writing, editing and self-publishing consultation business. Heidi’s endearing and magical new book is titled The Gateway Café. Laced with spiritual wisdom, transformative insights, and delightful humor, The Gateway Café explores a compelling journey of awakening for Heidi’s teenage protagonist named Thimble Allegra Smith. Through Thimble, Heidi explores the spiritual truth that we are all spirits on an evolutionary path who visit Earth many times to experience, learn and evolve.
