Artist Heather Abraham – Author

HeatherHeather Abraham is the author of two bestselling memoirs, The Bookie’s Daughter (2012) and DisOrganized Crimes (2015). Both focus on her unconventional childhood.

“I was a child of crime not by choice but by birthright. Crime was our family business. As the daughter of a notorious bookie/endorphin junkie and a trigger-happy alcoholic mother, my childhood was rife with police raids, scandal, domestic madness, and a line-up of characters that, according to a Pittsburgh Post-Gazette review, ‘could have walked straight out of an Elmore Leonard novel.’”
