About Helen

I live in a small town called Barrow-in-Furness and have done since I was born. It gets some bad press, but it really is a fab place to live. We are surrounded by beaches and very close to the Lake District where I tend to spend at least one of my days off from work, sitting in a coffee shop in Bowness or checking out the second hand shops.

I have always loved reading and writing. I started my own  writing journey back in my twenties, when I inspired to see if I could write my own book after reading one that I thought was less than great. I also love to read scary books, but after having devoured every Stephen King and James Herbert book there was (along with many more) I decided that there weren’t enough of the books out there that I love to read so I set out to write The Ghost House.

I am a member of both the Crime Writers Association and the Romantic Novelists Association. Through the RNA I have been nominated for the Joan Hessayon Award for debut authors and I’m absoloutley thrilled about it.

I love tattoos, scary films, listening to my iPod shuffle when I’m writing, coffee, cake, chocolate, wine. My five almost grown up kids and my three year old granddaughter.
