I live in the foothills of the North Pennines, and I love researching and writing about the history of the north east of England. Following my MA in creative writing at Manchester Met, I’m now completing a PhD in English at the University of Aberdeen.
Now that my tales of the 1650 Newcastle witch trials are complete, I’m working on a novel about the Shotley Bridge swordmakers (tentatively called Running Wolves). After that, I’ll be resuming work on a novel about Grace Darling. And then, my writing will take a more mysterious turn…
I hope you find something to interest you on my website and blog.
Best wishes, Helen
