Helen Pryke is a British author who has been living in the north of Italy since 1990, learning everything about Italians, their culture, and their way of life. She now considers herself more Italian than British, even though she has never lost her British accent. Addicted to coffee and chocolate, she has also developed a passion for good food, having married an Italian who is a wonderful cook!
Helen writes historical fiction with a hint of magical realism, set in Tuscany, as well as suspense novels with a protagonist who has an autoimmune illness. She also writes middle-grade fiction under the pen name, Julia E. Clements.
When she’s not writing, she works as a proofreader for indie authors. She loves reading, and will read anything and everything.
