Bio: Helen's writing spans a broad range of genres and styles. Penning her first poem, at age seven, sparked Helen's muse; at age fourteen she emerged as an award-winning essayist, and a year later her songwriting talent bloomed.
By adulthood, she catapulted to professional status, writing TV spots and comedy sketches, ad copy, nationally syndicated radio bits and numerous other formats including articles, expert advice, commentaries, and humor.
Helen's scriptwriting ability led her to the California-based publisher, "Children's Story Scripts" (which are read in group settings, helping kids overcome performance anxiety.) Helen's titles include: Dave's Unhappy Teeth, The Determined Maiden, Booga the Caveman Discovers Oil and Oh, Please, Not Opera...Learning LaBoheme. The latter proves to be very popular since Helen found a way to make opera so much fun that kids actually enjoy it. (For phone orders and info about Helen's titles, call: 1-818-787-5584.)
