She recently spent a year in Portland, Oregon, with her family, and on returning decided to switch direction and devote herself full time to writing books for young readers. Helen lives in a small village outside Cambridge with her husband, two teenage sons, two border collies, two gerbils, several hens and a bearded dragon called Frankie.
