This is the only website I have and I hope you find it useful, a place where you can find out about the three books I have published so far, and discover suggestions for further reading. One of the most rewarding aspects of being a writer is the response from readers, who often tell me my books have given pleasure or pause for thought.  I myself am an avid reader, and whether you are a supporter or a critic, I am more than happy to welcome you all. I was born in the Black Country, in the industrial Midlands of England, as were my parents and my grandparents, and my first book ‘The Chainmakers’   paid homage to that background. During the war my parents moved to Shropshire, and so I spent an idyllic childhood in that beautiful county.  I have always written, but in my youth it was mainly articles and short stories, to fit in with the demands of earning a living. My working life was varied, but largely spent in Personnel management (called Human Resources these days!) and I retired as Personnel and Marketing Director of a substantial retail chain. It was only after (early) retirement that I began to indulge of my love of history and write novels . I also write short stories and dabble in poetry when I can. Helen Spring
