Heidi Ferrer is a blogger, mother and former screenwriter. Her website launched in 2010, and within the first twelve months, Heidi's personal blog received approximately 2,700,000 page views, all because of her creative content, organic searches and white hat SEO.
Girl to Mom has a regular audience of over 30,000 unique monthly visitors in 178 countries, and has doubled its users every year. The site was voted one of the 25 Funniest Mom Blogs by Circle of Moms in 2011 and is part of the BlogHer publishing network. Heidi's essays and posts have been syndicated on that network of over 3,000 international blogs numerous times.
As a screenwriter, Ferrer has been successful for over a decade. Amongst the relatively small percentage of female writers in Hollywood, her personal earnings have topped $1.3 million. Ferrer's first Hollywood screenplay sale was in 1997, when her script "The C Word," sold to producer Arnold Kopelson, and 20th Century Fox Studios. Since then, she has sold and optioned many original screenplays, as well as having been hired to re-write other feature projects, for studios including: Disney, Warner Bros., MGM, and New Line Cinema.
In TV, she has written episodes of the TV series "Dawson's Creek" as well as an episode of the ABC TV series "Wasteland" and the TV movie "Princess." Ferrer is also a regular co-host on the humorous parenting web and TV series "Mother Bloggers" on the First Run TV Network.
She published her first novel, "Crooked Love" in 2012 which is based on the true life story of her own young son Bexon's rare form of potentially fatal scoliosis and a mother's race to find a cure before it's too late. After ten miraculous and lifesaving body casts, her son's spine has gone from 63 degrees to virtually normal, with no surgeries. He is nearly cured and is thriving.
Heidi lives in Los Angeles and is available to speak in a funny and down to earth way on topics including, but not limited to; writing, screen and TV writing, selling your screenplay, blogging and vlogging (one of her homemade videos has over 300,000 views on YouTube), creating and launching a successful blog or website, women's issues and motherhood, parent advocating for childhood illnesses and scoliosis, as well as social media.
