Helen Hollick (1953         )



Helen Hollick is the author of the Arthurian trilogy, The Pendragon's Banner and the novels, Harold The King, The Hollow Crown and The Sea Witch Series. 


Helen was born in Walthamstow, North East London, in 1953 and began writing at the age of 13. 

Interestingly Helen chose not to include Merlin and Lancelot in her Arthurian novels, as she wanted there to be no magic or Medieval myth. She was accepted for publication by William Heinemann just after her 40th birthday. 


Helen is currently working as an advisor on the film '1066' a film that is likely to cover much of what she wrote about in her historical novel 'Harold The King.'
