Helene Young

Monday, 04 April 2011 by

It seems fitting to have Helene Young as my guest blogger today, seeing as its Aussie Author Month.  I’m a big fan of Helene’s, after picking up Border Watch…now called Wings of Fear, and devouring it.  I love her mix of suspence, the Aussie QLD coastline and the good dose of romance.  So i’m excited to have her here!!

Is this one also a follow on with a character we are familiar with from Shattered Sky?  If possible, can you tell us

We had one of the writers from the Underbelly series talk and many others.  We were fed well also…one of my favourite parts…the choc éclairs were scrummie.
