Helen Leggatt

Biography

Helen Leggatt is a freelance writer specialising in travel, e-business and genealogy.

After emigrating to New Zealand from the UK in 2004 Helen was asked to write a regular column for the Malvern News in Canterbury, New Zealand. Called A Brit in the Boonies it took a sideways glance at the process of adapting to a new country, despite the lack of a language barrier.

So popular was the column amongst ex-pats and locals that the San Diego Reader (USA) published five extended versions and the column has now been collated into an ebook of the same name.
