Helen enjoys writing romance in any genre with a smidgeon of humour and a happy ending. When she’s not creating her own stories, she enjoys reading romance books with a strong cup of tea.
She lives in South Australia with her beautiful family and her menagerie of animals including a large rescue dog who imagines he’s a lapdog, a staffy mix who thinks she’s the next Snoopy (she stands on top of her kennel), a cat who insists she’s royalty, a herd of mini velociraptors impersonating chickens, a brumby who licks like a dog and a chestnut thoroughbred who’s certain she’s the next Phar Lap. They all drag her away from her book world demanding to be fed, kids and husband included.
She is a proud member of Romance Writers of Australia and her short story Letters to Bring Home won first in historical romance and Catnip Capers won the cozy romance category in their Aspiring eLoop 2019 competition.
