Helena Fairfax is a British author who was born in Uganda and came to England as a child. She's grown used to the cold now, and these days she lives in an old Victorian mill town in the north of England, right next door to the windswept Yorkshire moors and the home of the Bronte sisters. She walks this romantic landscape every day with her rescue dog, finding it the perfect place to dream up her heroes and her happy endings.

I live in Yorkshire, home of the Bronte sisters, and North and South was set in Lancashire, to the west of us (and our great rivals :) ) North and South is one of my favourite books - and as for Richard Armitage in the TV series...the perfect hero!!
And regarding your question - what did I have for my tea? Today, by coincidence, I'm making Lancashire Hot Pot - a casserole with lamb and potatoes. Thanks for asking!(less)

My hero is a diver, and I enlisted the help of some of the divers from Penrith Divers' Club. We went on an outing to Lake Ullswater, where they performed a dive, and we were all interviewed by the local press. It was great fun, and I learned so much. I came away with so much admiration for the divers.
I hope to finish the manuscript by the end of Feb...so back to work now!(less)

Charlotte's Web by E.B. White
“You have been my friend. That in itself is a tremendous thing. I wove my webs for you because I liked you. After all, what's a life, anyway? We're born, we live a little while, we die. A spider's life can't help being something of a mess, with all this trapping and eating flies. By helping you, perhaps I was trying to lift up my life a trifle. Heaven knows anyone's life can stand a little of that.”
