Lovely News!

Arthur's Seat, sunset yesterday. D, my friends A (the film maker) and C (visiting from London) and I decided to climb the iconic Edinburgh 'mountain'. It was a wonderful day - and this was before I found out...


My novel Kilea just won the Unbound Press Best Novel Award! Congratulations to my good friend Gillian Best, who came second with her funny and heart-wrenching novel Carbunckle’s Flight.

To be honest, I am a little giddy at the moment.

Going to have a cup of tea and recover from a glorious weekend, and a fab surprise.

    Wow! Congratulations Helen! If I was a jealous person I’d be green with envy. But as is, I’m happy for you and cannot wait to read Kilea.

      ps – please be sure to let us know the details when it comes available!

      • I definitely will – it’s been quite some time moving towards this, so I’ll likely be so giddy I go rather overboard.

        I expect to jump at The Berry Pickers, when it’s going out into the world.
