Hello, I’m Helen Wilkie. I’m also M.H. Wilkie — and Nell Young! Let me explain.
As a professional speaker in the business world, I’ve been writing non-fiction business books for many years under my own name, Helen Wilkie. Those books are not featured on this site yet as I am setting it up mainly for my fiction books, but eventually they will all be here too.
When I began writing fiction, I wanted to separate them in some way just to avoid confusion. So I write my fiction under the name of M. H. Wilkie, which simply makes use of my initials instead of the middle name by which I’m known to the world.
And just for fun, I started writing non-fiction books on a subject that has given me hours of pleasure all my life — knitting. To keep that one separate I use the pen name of Nell Young.
They all represent different aspects of me — welcome to my world!
