Helen Moat was born in Northern Ireland and spent her childhood travelling the length and breadth of the island in her Dad's Morris Minor. She studied German in England, living in Switzerland and Germany for extended periods, and has since settled in the Peak District, her adopted home. She is constantly inspired by the local landscape, and the people and places shaped by the Peaks. A keen walker and cyclist, she's happiest when outdoors and on the move. As a travel and fiction writer, she's always on the hunt for a good story. The Peak District gives her plenty of material.
