My last post about publishing Exciting Times proved to be so popular, I thought it may be interesting to continue the theme. I intend talking to a few fellow writers about their experiences, asking them, how and why they write, if they had been published and whether they would consider self publishing.
Today we are starting with one of my blogging pals, now turned published author, Helena Halme. I have always been a fan of Helena’s blog and I am delighted that she has published “The Englishman”.
When did you realise you wanted to write?
I began writing when growing up in Finland, but it took me years to gain the confidence to write fiction in English. It wasn’t until my early forties that I enrolled on a MA in Creative Writing at Bath Spa University. Since then I’ve been writing non-stop (try stopping me!).
What do you write?
I write fiction, mainly novels set in Finland and Sweden. Since my MA I’ve written three novels. The Englishman is a romantic tale of love across oceans. I also write blog, Helena’s London Life, about my escapades in the city.
The Englishman is published digitally by Kindle and Smashwords. How did that come about?
