Finding a voice

By Helen Edwards

So this is a blog about interior decorating with a difference. Yet green decorating is not a new idea. Using second hand items is as old as time. Sustainable building practices and eco friendly green design have been around for a while. ¬†Once you start looking you find the web is full of blogs, websites,…

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 wellbeing, vintage and eco blogger. I also offer sensitivity/diversity reading services for other writers, in the areas of physical and mental health.

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.

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. I am also working on a picture book and my type 1 diabetes memoir.

I look forward to sharing stories with you. You can sign up here for my occasional news, shop for books and eco-products here and head here to find my services.
