Helen Maslin lives in Cheltenham with her husband and two sons. Darkmere Summer is her first novel. She has unnaturally red hair and thick spectacles. She is generally described as 'arty'...and to be honest - sometimes as 'completely unreasonable'. She writes because she wants to be Neil Gaiman. Or Sally Gardner. Or maybe Laini Taylor. Or E Lockhart would be good too! Helen likes coffee and cake, Roy Lichtenstein's art and Peter Lorre's voice...
Darkmere is the dark, romantic and evocative YA novel from debut author Helen Maslin. Following the lives of two girls a century apart, the novel combines chills and romance to create a truly gripping read. Prepare to become completely immersed in Kate and Elinor’s lives as separately they uncover the secrets of Darkmere … A Piece of Passion from Barry Cunningham, Publisher I’m mesmerized by Helen Maslin’s frighteningly real blend of modern romance, Gothic ghost story and a beautiful charmed and doomed tale of lost love from long ago. You know the feeling, when you can’t wait for daylight to dawn and it’s going to be all right again, then suddenly it’s so, so NOT ! I loved it. No thanks, I don’t feel like going to the beach today. Or ever again!
