maxwell and Helen Pioneer Village Swan Hill

Welcome. My name is Dr Helen Edwards. I'm an Australian children's and YA author, represented by Debbie Golvan at Golvan Arts Management.

I'm also an award-winning blogger, freelance writer and sensitivity reader.

See more here about how I can help you with  freelance writing and sensitivity reading services.

I have a Bachelor of Social Work, a PhD in Psychology, a Certificate in Diabetes Education and a Certificate in Design. In 2001 I founded an award-winning online counselling service to support people living with diabetes. It was the first in the world and it was a hit! You can see more here.

I've had type 1 diabetes myself since 1979 and have quite a few other chronic conditions that can make life tricky, including stomach paralysis (gastroparesis), anxiety and ADHD. I like to write stories that include characters who are living with physical and mental health conditions.

In 2013 I started a sustainable living blog and interior decorating service, called Recycled Interiors, which is now merged at my writing site here.

I'm passionate about our Mother Earth and inspiring action for our children's future. The environment, animals and nature, often feature in my stories.

I look forward to sharing stories with you,

Helen
