Helen Irene Young

Helen is the author of The May Queen (published 25th April 2017 by Crooked Cat Books) and a digital editor.

In a former life, she worked as a bookseller for Waterstones and an admissions assistant for an acting school, before signing up to a £12-a-day internship at a glossy magazine (when it was the norm). For the next six years (and on a better grade) she went on to write and edit for Harper’s Bazaar and Good Housekeeping. She is currently the digital editor for Bloomsbury Publishing.

Helen attended the Faber Novel Writing Programme. She splits her time between London, Wiltshire and Colombia, when she can get there. The May Queen is her debut novel.
