WINO

After a decade spent as a supermarket wine buyer, I set up a wine blog mostly to stop my friends calling me in from the wine aisle in a panic asking what they should buy. After all, life’s too short to drink bad wine.

AUTHOR

 After publishing my first book ‘The Knackered Mother’s Wine Guide’ back in 2013, I wrote a few more drinks books before turning to fiction. I’ve since written four novels and my latest one is called ‘The Island of Dreams.’  (Spoiler alert – it may contain wine).

HI, I'M HELEN

I’m a best-selling author, wine writer and broadcaster and mother of three.

I spent almost a decade sourcing wines around the world for a supermarket and  spent the next half a decade pregnant.
