1S helenHelenR

Helen writes short stories, mostly literary, because she is intrigued by what makes an ordinary life extraordinary, or a mundane situation interesting, or the commonplace surprising. “What better way to do this than to write about familiar people in conventional situations by uncovering their innermost secrets.”

Helen says she is fortunate to have been published, and to have won (among a few other contests) the Alice Munro Short Story Award just a week before Munro won the Nobel Prize for Literature.
