Broken Silence has been getting some great reviews lately. Thanks to everyone who took the time to review it.
"I could easily see this transfer onto the big screen; it has all the right elements to make a fabulous psychological thriller movie to keep audiences glued to their seats. It certainly kept me glued to the pages, I read it in one sitting with a short sleep break!"
"...perfect for teens who want a gritty, edge-of-your-seat story but I also know that adults will love it too. I’d love to see Broken Silence on book awards lists next year as it is certainly a winner with me."
"This is one of the most nail-biting psychological thrillers I’ve read in a while. ...the plot was tight, making Broken Silence a tense, dramatic read."
- Sarah Forster The Sapling.
"Helen has managed to craft a character that I really cared about by the end..."
I'm excited to announce that my first young adult novel, Broken Silence is now live! To celebrate, I'm throwing an online launch party on the 6th July (New Zealand time - 5th July Eastern time.) There will be games, guest authors and giveaways (both from me and the guest authors.) I would love to see you there - come for the full 12 hours, or drop in and out as you can. The giveaways will stay open for 24 hours, so feel free to join in later if you can't make it on the day.
I hope to see you at the event, and I hope you enjoy the book!
A stranger just put Kelsey’s boyfriend in a coma. The worst part? She asked him to do it.
Seventeen-year-old Kelsey is dealing with a lot – an abusive boyfriend, a gravely ill mother, an absent father, and a confusing new love interest.
After her boyfriend attacks her in public, a stranger on the end of the phone line offers to help. Kelsey pays little attention to his words, but the caller is deadly serious. Suddenly the people Kelsey loves are in danger, and only Kelsey knows it.
Will Kelsey discover the identity of the caller before it’s too late?
