Helen is a published author, using the pen name Victoria Milne, an intermediate member of the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading (CIEP), and has been a full-time freelance editor since 2017. She has always loved reading and has lost many, many hours to good books! It wasn’t until 2012 that it occurred to her to try writing her own. She loved it so much that she has been making up for lost time and has been studying the mechanics of writing ever since. These days she both writes and enjoys helping other authors perfect their manuscripts so the story they are telling shines through.
