Originally a writer of children's books - Max, and the Gang of Five - being her last (Zeus Publications), Helen is now a member of the Romance Writers of Australia and specializes in contemporary women's fiction, humorous romance, romantic drama, and even urban fantasy. She has had short stories published in the RWA's anthologies, Little Gems, and online in the USA and Germany.
"Escape to Santorini" is her first eBook novel,
then "Marigold's Luck":
"One Greek Summer":
"The Chocolate Affair":
Often wondering if, in a past life, she lived on a Greek island, Helen has traveled for the past twenty years throughout Greece. She has spent much of this time in villages studying customs, and enjoying the day-to-day life of the people. She says she’s been looking for her special place, but in the meantime has gathered experiences, images, indulgences, and friends.
Helen's travel writing includes, "Paros", published in Lonely Planet’s "Rite of Passage - Tales of Backpacking Round Europe", P.168, (2003), a photo/para "postcard" of Israel in "The Asia Book", (2008) P.216, and her latest travel piece on Greece - "Ancient Charms for the Young-at-heart which appeared in the Sunday News Limited newspapers in Australia, (2011)". Earlier, Helen has written an eBook called Greece - Gleeful Glimpses.
Her memoir "Make Mine A Moussaka" is her most recent work: https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/136266
And you can view her folio of Greek photographs on her website - http://greekpixandwords.com.
Knowing that it is always a problem when you want to visit a foreign country but don’t know a lot about it and how it works:
Helen recommends her eBook - "GREECE - 100 Travel Tips": https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/126404
She also runs a service for travelers planning a holiday in Greece. She finds you can Google until the cows come home, but never quite sort out in your mind exactly what you want, without a little help. Having traveled the Mainland, the Peloponnese, the Ionian Islands, the Cyclades Islands, Crete, and the Dodecanese, and having learned the way things tick, she knows the best archaeological sites, the most interesting islands, the best places for R&R, relatively unknown spots, excellent beaches, good hikes, and can suggest best Budget accommodations or top-of-the-range resorts.

Having been a lover of all things Greek for many years, I was excited to get my hands on this book. It is an excellent travel guide, yes, but "Make Mine a Moussaka" is so much more. The author shares my love of wine: I sense a kindred spirit every time she relates a Greek recipe and suggests a wine to go along with the cooking experience. There are many delightful sounding recipes in here that I look forward to trying. The reader also is the recipient of helpful Greek phrases and sayings, which I enjoyed learning. She says "It's best to understand that Greece is not a pretty country--rather it's stunning and at times awesome, and always fascinating." This is just how I picture it, along with the beloved gods and goddesses peeking out of the shadows, smiling that we've come to visit, and hopefully honor them. "Oh to eat moussaka at sunset, at a table overlooking a tiny bay, while listening to the waves lap on the pebbles near your feet." Sure makes me want to go! A highly recommended book for enjoyment as well as learning.
