Hi there and welcome! My name is Dr Helen Edwards. I have a PhD in Psychology and am an author of children's and young adult fiction and non-fiction for adults, represented by Debbie Golvan, of Golvan Arts Management.

I am an award-winning wellbeing and eco blogger and a freelance writer.

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 sustainable blog and decorating service, which is now merged here at my writing site. I am passionate about our beautiful Mother Earth and about inspiring action.

You can sign up here for my occasional news, shop for books and eco-products here and head here to find my writing services.
