A Tribute - Helen Cadbury - 1965 - 2017


Just wanted to post a quick tribute to Helen Cadbury an author and friend I met at two Cleckheaton Literature Festivals.  Sadly she passed away from cancer in June of this year.

Although I'd only met Helen twice at the festivals we chatted quite a bit at both and she was very friendly and warm and asked about my writing.  We also messaged each other on messenger where she gave me writing tips.

Helen was born in the Midlands and grew up in Saddlworth.  Writing was a passion for Helen since she was young but before she became a published author she had a variety of jobs including actor, drama teacher and worked in prison education.
As well as crime fiction she also wrote plays and poetry.

A collection of Helen's poetry is due out this November by Valley Press.

Out November 2017 by Valley Press

Sadly Helen's writing career is cut short just as it was taking off but the books she has out go check them as they are great reads.  I am currently reading her Sean Denton book 2 - Bones in the Nest.

Helen is survived by her husband and son.

Look out in the shops for Helen's third and sadly last Sean Denton book Race to the Kill out now in bookshops from Allison and Busby publishers.
