About the Author

Helen Millman’s debut book, “A Mother’s Poem,” earned her instant accolades and swiftly rose to the title of Halo’s best-seller in October 2020. She was also honored as a finalist in the 2020 America Best Book Awards, in the mind-body-spirit category. Her newest children’s book, Olive and the Valentine’s Spell, continues Helen’s artistic vision to inspire. While “love is put to the test every single day” …Helen believes there is always,” the opportunity to find the strength within ourselves to choose love, even when it seems impossible”.

A young girl in Israel, she pursued her creativity as an outlet that provided immense healing following the unexpected death of her father. Driven on her path of perpetual self-growth Helen has found herself in numerous arenas, both professionally and personally.

As a young academic, she attended NYU studying liberal arts and later graduated from Fairly Dickinson University with a degree in business. Her diverse background, love of languages, creativity, and business talents eventually led her to Vero Beach, Florida where she presently resides.

She, and her husband of over 15-years share three beautiful boys ages 13, 11 and 6 who provide Helen’s life with endless adventures and heartfelt inspiration. Her family currently owns a well-known local restaurant providing healthy, fresh, and nourishing foods. As a board member of the Education Foundation of Indian River County and a producer of the Asbury Short Film exhibition in Vero Beach, she values the community, enjoys volunteering, and knows the positive impact the arts can play in people’s lives every day. As an author, she hopes to inspire the idea that, “once love is permitted – the path to one’s individual source of healing will become available too.”
