About Helen Brown

Helen was born in Mount Isa, the eldest of five children to Salvation Army Officers. She discovered a love of reading as a young girl, and two stories that captured her imagination were Anne of Green Gables and Little Women. Just like the heroines in these stories, she wanted to write. Helen started writing poetry in her late 30s but it was not until her late 50s that her dream of writing a book was finally realised. She has now published several books and completed a teaching degree.

Today, Helen lives on a farm with her family in the Northern Tablelands of New South Wales. She has established a small publishing business with her daughter, which can be found here. She also blogs at The Helen Brown Collection.

Having read the stance being taken by the Presbyterian Church, I was again looking at my mother's notes and came across this message on the Bible. It seemed appropriate to share this. Mankind and the Bible 1) Tried to wipe it out. Of course, why ...read more

A Test Taste

Do you like to taste-test your cooking before you have finished the whole thing? I admit to being guilty of this. Since social distancing has become law in this country, things haven’t changed very much for us. We are emerging slowly from the drought, where ...read more
