During her life Helen has had a go at writing anything and everything - from newsletters, magazine articles, exhibition critiques, editorial content for charity magazines, travel pieces on the antique markets of London, to a full-stage adaptation of the story of Gilbert and Sullivan for the G&S Society of South Australia. Having been an actor/singer, theatre director, art gallery proprietor, wife and mother, antique dealer, gift retailer, and now a full-time writer, Helen draws on her life experiences in all her work.
Often wondering if, in a past life, she lived on a Greek island, Helen has travelled for the past twenty years throughout Greece. She has passed much of this time in villages studying traditions, and enjoying the day-to-day life of the people. She has spent holidays in domatia (rooms) of all kinds throughout the Mainland, the Peloponnese and the Greek islands. She says she’s been looking for her special place, but in the meantime has gathered experiences, images, indulgences, and friends.
