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.

Nata in Inghilterra, Helen Pryke è venuta ad abitare in Italia quando aveva 20 anni. Doveva imparare la lingua, la cultura e i modi degli italiani, molto diversi da quelli inglesi. Dopo aver avuto due figli, si è dedicata alla sua passione per la scrittura. Da qualche anno lavora come traduttrice e Muri di silenzio è il suo primo romanzo, ispirato dai lati più oscuri e affascinanti dell’Italia e dalla sua passione per questo bellissimo e complicato paese.
