As a child, Helen had a vivid imagination fuelled by her love of reading, so she started to create her own stories in a notebook.

She still prefers fictional worlds to real life, believes characterisation is the key to a successful book, and enjoys infusing her writing with humour and heart.

Helen is a member of the Romantic Novelists' Association and The Society of Authors.

My inspiration for Emmy's story really came in the form of the opening scene - how would someone feel if they caught their boyfriend with an older rather than a younger woman? One of the places we stayed one summer seemed the perfect base for an imaginary setting, and it all just developed from there.(less)

“Thank you for choosing to read The Little French Guesthouse. I hope you enjoyed Emmy’s journey to France and self-discovery as much as I did! If you were as sorry as I was to reach The End and you are wondering what will happen between Emmy and Alain, you will be pleased to know that a sequel is on the way!”
