Helena Lancaster is a native of the Upstate region of South Carolina. She and her best friends, whom she refers to as her sisters, and their cats still reside there. She has been writing since she was a small child winning her first writing award at the age of seven. Her poetry, which she openly calls her personal form of therapy, became a major focus of her writing during her teenage years. Writing poetry has been a way to help her heal from the pain of her past and is a coping mechanism for her PTSD and Depression. She hopes that her writing can help others who have gone through similar struggles to know that there is a light at the end of the tunnel no matter how dark things may seem. Helena has studied creative writing, history, and literature with interests spanning multiple time periods and genres. She considers herself a student of the world having traveled through four European countries and lived in two of them for short periods of time. Helena is also an activist against bullying, animal cruelty, and for research and awareness of blood clotting disorders such as Factor V Leiden which she has been diagnosed with. She has released two collections of poetry, Behind the Mask: A Collection of Poetry and Phoenix from the Ashes: Poetry from Personal Struggle, Rebirth, and Triumph. She is also the co-writer of The Passion of the Dragon Saga along with her best friend, Rayna Kingston. They have released the first two books in the series, Hearts on Fire and Love in Flames, both subtitled The Story of Vlad the Impaler and the Women He Loved and are currently working on the third installment, Souls Ignited, to be released July 24, 2018. She is currently developing her first Fantasy Series, The Elements of Ilysia, projecting to release the first book, A Darkness Awakens, on February 28, 2018. She has several other novel projects that are shaping together with plans to release more poetry in the future.
