Helen McKenna grew up in Queensland, Australia. An avid reader from childhood, she always dreamed of writing her own book one day.

Helen completed a B.A. degree at the University of Queensland and has worked in many fields – banking, local government, in learning support, as a swimming instructor and as a biographer. Her love of the beach and Queenslander houses inspired her to write The Beach House, her first novel.

Helen lives on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland.
