Welcome! My name is Dr Helen Edwards. I'm an Australian author of books for children and young adults, represented by Golvan Arts Management.
My debut middle-grade novel - an Australian historical fiction time-slip adventure, set at Mt Buffalo, inspired by and featuring Guide Alice Manfield, will be published in 2023, by Riveted Press!
I have a PhD in Psychology and worked in mental health for many years. On my blog, I write book reviews and stories about other Australian authors; share some of my own author story and learnings in life; and write about sustainability, wellbeing and nature. I am available for author talks and workshops. I am also a freelance writer and social media manager and you can see more here.
I've had type 1 diabetes since 1979 and live with anxiety and ADHD. I like to include characters in my stories who are neurodivergent and/or who live with physical and mental health conditions, out in the world, having adventures.
I'm passionate about inspiring action for our planet and nature features in all of my stories.
I look forward to sharing stories with you, because they really can change the world.
