Helen Slavin author

‘Witty and heart-warming and a little eerie’ Independent on Sunday

 

Helen Slavin is the author of ten novels and comes originally from Manchester in the North West of England.

She lives with her family in Wiltshire where she spends her time toying with the fates of her characters and losing herself in mythology, fables and folklore.
