No.4 – Helen Summer

Helen is an author living in Christchurch, Dorset. She started writing in 1997, initially writing children’s stories and short stories aimed at the women’s magazine market. She embarked on the Writers Bureau correspondence course, which she completed in two years.  She also became Press Officer of the athletic club where she coached.

She was introduced to a publisher at a half-marathon race in Majorca. That publisher turned out to be John Blake who then invited Helen to write a book about people who’d run over 100 marathons. That book turned into ‘Running Crazy’, published by John Blake Publishing in March 2012, available on Amazon,  all good book stores and some sports shops.
