'Helen's Lavender Road novels are written with a lightness of touch, an emotional integrity and an historical accuracy which has brought her respect from critics and readers alike by making this period of history accessible to large audiences worldwide.'  Louis de Bernières

'These stories are told with real excitement and a passion for the foibles of character and behaviour. They are packed with drama and incident and rooted in a consistently well-observed and vividly painted every day reality.'      Andrew Rissick

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 is to entertain. One of my biggest satisfactions is to receive reader comments or to see someone on a train or a plane engrossed in one of my novels!
