Legacy of the Highlands by Maine writer Harriet Schultz

Harriet Schultz

Harriet Schultz is a longtime journalist whose love of writing crystallized into a career when she became Pulitzer Prize winner David Halberstam’s editorial assistant at Harper’s Magazine. Her work there led to a job in TIME’s Nation section, where she was one of the two researcher/reporters assigned to the magazine’s Watergate coverage.

Since discovering that it’s much more fun to make things up than to cover real world events, Schultz has written a series of three contemporary romantic suspense novels—Legacy of the Highlands, A Legacy of Revenge and Legacy of Love—and, most recently, Falling Into Drew, a contemporary romance. Each of her books has become an Amazon bestseller.

Raised in New York, Harriet lived in San Francisco for many years before moving to Maine with her husband, a Portland native, who never told her that Mainers are like homing pigeons and always return here. Fortunately, she likes winter. As a reporter at The Forecaster, she won an investigative reporting award from the New England Press Association.

Travel is a passion and time spent in all of the locations in her books adds flavor to the stories’ settings.
