Author Profile - Helen Harvey

Author of: titles in the Reading Stars series.

After studying English at Oxford University, I worked for a youth charity supporting children with special educational needs or who were at risk of exclusion. I then became a primary school teacher at a wonderful school where they kept goats and bees, and had classrooms in the woods.

I now run creative writing courses for young people at Kilve Court, and write video games, whenever I’m not teaching or writing stories. I’m a published children’s poet, and I am working on my debut novel about a girl who beats her bullies through the power of video games, as part of the MA in Writing for Young People at Bath Spa.

I love puzzles, coffee, cats, and peanut butter with everything.
