Helen Caldwell


I’m a writer living in Wellington, New Zealand. In 2017 I won a place on the New Zealand Society of Authors Mentorship Programme, which I used to complete the first draft of a mystery novel.

From October 2011 to December 2013 I lived and worked in Australia. I spent my spare time hunting out Melbourne’s hidden caf├ęs, trying my hand at yarn bombing, exploring Australia’s cities and road tripping in the outback. During that time I wrote a travel- and health-themed memoir.

In the three years before that I lived in Edinburgh where I enjoyed the city’s thriving literary scene. I wrote about books and literary events and was lucky enough to secure interviews with some of my favourite writers, which you can find on the Author Interviews page.
