Helen Jones was born in the UK, then lived in both Canada and Australia before returning to England several years ago. She has worked as a freelance writer for the past ten years, runs her own blog and has contributed guest posts to others, including the Bloomsbury Writers & Artists site.

When she's not writing, she likes to walk, paint and study karate. She loves the idea of finding magic in ordinary places; as a child she and her grandmother used to visit the woods on Midsummer's eve to look for fairies - whether they found any or not, is a story for another time.

She now lives in Hertfordshire with her husband and daughter, and spends her days writing, cleaning, thinking, and counting cats on the way to school.

When you have a deadline and a paying client there can be no such thing as writers block - you have to get the work done. If worst comes to worst I set a timer for twenty minutes and, in that time, all I have to do it write. It usually gets the words flowing, even if it's on a subject that doesn't particularly interest me.(less)

I love the feeling of stories coming to me, characters whispering their tales in my ear. Being able to structure my work hours around my family is the best thing from a practical point of view.(less)
