Heidi Thomas has a B.A. in Communications and an MHR from the University of Oklahoma. However, she admits that even after college she was the reluctant writer, lacking knowledge not of what to write but how to write. When Andrew Pudewa offered live Teaching Writing: Structure and Style classes and student seminars just three miles from her home, she attended, knowing this was the method she would use to teach her four boys. IEW certified Heidi as an Accomplished Instructor in 2013. In addition to teaching IEW Online classes, she is an IEW editor and on the Product Development team.
