Helen Grant

Helen Grant was born in London, England. She read Classics at St.Hugh's College, Oxford, and then worked for ten years in Marketing to fund her love of travelling. In 2001 she and her family moved to Bad Münstereifel in Germany and it was exploring the legends of this beautiful town that inspired her to write her first novel. From 2008 to 2011 she lived in Brussels, Belgium. She now lives in Scotland with her husband, two children and two cats.

Helen's debut novel "The Vanishing of Katharina Linden" was shortlisted for the prestigious British fiction award, the CILIP Carnegie Medal 2010 and won an ALA Alex Award 2011. Helen's second novel "The Glass Demon" was nominated for the CILIP Carnegie Medal 2011 and was a finalist in the International Thriller Writers Awards 2012, category: Best Paperback Original. Her third novel "Wish me dead" was also nominated for the CILIP Carnegie Medal.

Helen is currently working on a trilogy set in Flanders, Belgium. The first book, "Silent Saturday" will be published in Spring 2013 by Bodley Head.
