Helen Ellis

Very boring, I'm sure, but this is how it reads in official language…

During her life Helen has had a go at writing anything and everything - from newsletters, magazine articles, exhibition critiques, editorial content for charity magazines, travel pieces on the antique markets of London, to theater sketches and a full stage adaptation of the story of Gilbert and Sullivan. Having been an actor/singer, theater director, art gallery proprietor, wife and mother, antique dealer, gift retailer, dedicated traveler, and now a full time writer, Helen draws on her life experiences in all her writings.

 Lately, Helen has turned her writing to novels and short stories. A member of the Romance Writers of Australia, Helen has had short stories published in the US, and in Little Gems, RWA, Amethyst and Topaz. She now has many eBook novels in the Romance, Chick-lit, Humorous Contemporary Romance, Romantic Drama and Mystery, Contemporary Women's fiction, Cozy Humor, and Paranormal genres. Her adventure novel for children, Max and the Gang of Five, is now available as an eBook. Her first romantic drama novel, Escape to Santorini, investigates the formation of overseas friendships through the internet, and their extension into real life (with a Greek setting!)

          Often wondering if, in a past life, she lived on a Greek island, Helen has traveled for many years throughout Greece. She has spent much of this time in villages studying customs, and enjoying the day-to-day life of the people. She says she's been looking for her special place, but in the meantime has gathered experiences, images, diversions, and friends. This knowledge has been expanded into her short e-Book, GREECE - 100 Travel Tips - https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00GXYZIAE.

          Her piece, Paros, in Lonely Planet's collection of travel stories, Rite of Passage: Tales of Backpacking 'Round Europe, P168, (Lonely Planet Publications), and another piece, Tiryns, published in Travel Post Monthly, and Strictly Europe, and the acceptance of Ancient Charms for the Young-at-Heart in the Escape section of the Australian News Limited newspapers, inspired her to expand her Greek diaries into the memoir, Make Mine a Moussaka - now also published as an e-Book - https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00FQJ0KX2.

Helen's first website - https://greekpixandwords.com contains her own great pictures of Greece and her blog - https://greekpixandwords.com/blog/  Helen's travel photography is used widely - one of her photos of Israel can be seen in Lonely Planet's Asia book.

Helen wishes to thank Melanie Olson for her fine work in designing and setting up her websites, and to Timothy Ellis for his support and expertise.
