Born and living in Australia, Helen currently resides in the northwest of Tasmania. After over 33 years in the Australian Regular Army, she is now retired, and happily spends her days as house spouse to her partner, Kate. When she isn’t occupied as a play thing for their two furkids, she enjoys cooking (and the eating that necessarily follows) travelling, reading, writing and finally paying sufficient focus on completing her family history. Helen has always had a love of writing and poetry, completing her first body of work–a piece of poetry, at 15. Once an active sportswoman, she is now an avid spectator rather than participant.
