Helen Mun Bio

From a young age, I have always had a passion for reading and writing and a love of adventure. As soon as I finished school, I began my travels and worked in as an au pair in France. Since then, I have lived and been an educator in Hong Kong, Shanghai and Jakarta, where I have imparted my passion for reading, writing and all things books with my students.

Currently I live in Melbourne where I was born and raised. As an author, writing is my avenue for sharing my stories with children from around the world.

Books! Books! And more Books! A wonderful library full of books at my friend’s home. Lots of inspiration for my writing.

The magical mazes and topiary trees are like Sparkleville! Such a wonderful place where I can imagine Spiroula and Kitty dancing around the fountain with butterflies everywhere.

Art is one of Helen Mun’s inspirations.

The colourful squares in my friend Spiroula’s art are like a beautiful carpet of green in a meadow. An image planted in my mind grew to create the meadow in the Forest Adventures series.
