Helen’s new book, BREAKFAST IN BOGOTA, publishes 8th August and is available to pre-order at Waterstones, Foyles and all good bookstores.

Her debut, The May Queen, was published in 2016. Good Housekeeping termed it an ‘unsettling, coming-of-age tale.’ Stylist called her ‘One to watch.’

In a former life, she worked as a bookseller for Waterstones and an admissions assistant for an acting school, before signing up to a £12-a-day internship at a glossy magazine (when it was the norm). For the next six years (and on a better grade) she went on to write and edit for Harper’s Bazaar and Good Housekeeping. She attended the Faber Academy.
