Helen Pryke is a British author who has been living in the north of Italy for almost 30 years, learning everything about Italians, their culture, and their way of life. She now considers herself more Italian than British, even though she has never lost her British accent. Addicted to coffee and chocolate, she has also developed a passion for good food, having married an Italian who is a wonderful cook! 

Helen writes emotional women's fiction set in Italy that deals with the difficult subject of abuse in a sensitive way. She also writes middle grade fiction under the pen name, Julia E. Clements (see children's books). When she's not writing, she works as a proofreader for indie authors and a translator (from Italian to English). She loves reading, and will read anything and everything.


My brand new suspense novel, The Lost Girls, has been published and is available on Amazon and in Kindle Unlimited.


Four years ago, two teenage girls were abducted.


Four years ago, a ten-year-old boy was murdered.


Both cases are still unsolved.


Desperate to find their sisters, Michael and Chloe beg investigative journalist Maggie Dupont to help them. What starts as a simple investigation soon turns into a frantic race against time as they realise that the kidnapper took the girls to replace his sisters. The sisters who died sixteen years earlier.


Forced to face traumatic events from the past, Maggie finds herself in the middle of a nightmare that’s about to get worse…

My children's book, Dreamland, is also available as an audiobook at all online retailers! The wonderful Kae Denino had brought all the characters to life in this 4-hour recording.
