Helen's comments: 

I have always loved writing. As a child I much preferred to sit writing pony stories than actually go to a riding lesson! I am also a big reader and have developed a particular interest in story structure, how to create compelling stories that grab and keep the readers' attention. Whether it be a novel set in wartime London or a contemporary romance or crime adventure, my overriding aim in my writing is to entertain. One of my biggest satisfactions is to see someone on a train or a plane engrossed in one of my novels.
