Hi there and thank you for visiting my webpage. I am often being asked:
“What do I wish for my readers to learn from my books about love?”
I learned that the fear of love often relates to fear of rejection. I wish to connect my readers with the opportunity to discover love not so much romantically but rather from a context that “Love is in everything that we do”. Perhaps it will allow the meaning of love to reveal itself with a light and tender place in their eyes.
Olive is a sweet elementary school boy who is afraid to go to school on Valentine’s Day. . .because he thinks he’ll have to get married! Olive’s mom joins in his fight to defeat the “princess of love,” but along the way he learns an even bigger lesson, discovering the true meaning of love.

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.”
