Helena Fox lives in Wollongong, Australia, where she mentors young writers and runs workshops on writing and mental health. Helena has an MFA in Creative Writing from Warren Wilson College in the US. Her acclaimed debut novel, HOW IT FEELS TO FLOAT, has been published in Australia and internationally. Helena has lived with mental health issues since she was small and works every day to be mindful, compassionate, and gentle with herself and others. She believes strongly in helping others find and express their voice, and in being kind. If she could, Helena would probably spend every single day walking and writing beside the sea.
