Welcome. My name is Dr Helen Edwards. I have a PhD in Psychology and I’m a children’s and YA author, represented by Debbie Golvan at Golvan Arts Management. I’m currently working on a number of middle-grade and young adult novels – stay tuned!
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, including being a state finalist in the Australian of The Year Awards and The Telstra Business Women’s Awards. You can see more here.
I’ve had type 1 diabetes myself since 1979 and have quite a few other chronic conditions that can make life tricky, including stomach paralysis (gastroparesis), anxiety and ADHD. I like to write stories that include characters who are living with physical and mental health conditions.
In 2013 I started a sustainable living blog, which is now merged at my writing site here. I’m passionate about our Mother Earth and inspiring action for our children’s future. The environment, animals and nature, often feature in my stories.
I look forward to sharing stories with you,
