Helen Jane Chihal
Helen Jane Chihal is a retired gynecologist who specialized in hormonal disorders in women. One of her main clinical interests is menopause and she is certified as a menopause clinician by the North American Menopause Society. As an avid reader all her life, Helen was disappointed in how few adventure or fantasy books had older women as heroes. The positive effect of comic book “super heroes” on her children as they grew up impressed her. Where were the positive, mythic images for the menopausal woman? Almost two decades ago, she began writing for her own amusement adventure stories featuring the women of SilverShadows who discover their alternate identities after the withdrawal of estrogen at menopause. Although Dr. Chihal has written medical books on menopause, PMS and a book for the public on women’s health with Nancy Brinker, The Silver Threads of Time is her first full length work of fiction. Helen lives with her husband David in Dallas, Texas and has three grown children.
