Miraculous My body, Broken parts pushing me flat, Holding me to ransom, Becoming my prison. My mind, rising up, Seeing the whole picture, Birds across sky, black arcs calling through warm winds, Blue skies rolling over dusky pink mountains, Silver seas tumbling gently over golden sands. My heart filled with stories, Woven by people, Warmed by…Read More

Hi there and welcome! My name is Dr Helen Edwards. I am a children's author represented by Debbie Golvan, of Golvan Arts Management.
I have a PhD in Psychology and am an award-winning health and eco blogger. I am Mama to 3 beautiful sons and live in Adelaide with my family, 2 snuggly cats and a very energetic young Kelpie.
I have wanted to be a writer for as long as I can remember. So, I went off and became a social worker! Seriously not writerly. But in fact it was, because most of my work over the decades has been about people's stories.
I have lived with type 1 diabetes since 1979 and have quite a few other chronic conditions that make life tricky, including stomach paralysis (gastroparesis), anxiety and ADHD.
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. I ran this for more than 16 years and won many awards for this work. You can see more here.
In 2013 I started a blog called Recycled Interiors, which later became the Sustainable Home Hub, and finally, merged here at my writing site. I am passionate about our beautiful Mother Earth and about inspiring action. In particular, I focus on living a gentle life, for our children's future.
I am currently working with my agent on getting my middle-grade story, The Heart of Scorpius, out into the world. Works in progress include middle-grade stories, The Forest Keepers, and Sailing The Spaces In-Between. I am also working on a picture book and my type 1 diabetes memoir.
