Helen Orme

  • 5 stars across 107 books
    Helen Orme is the author of The Siti's Sisters Series as well as part of the Trailblazers, Thunderbolts and Streetwise Series, all published by Ransom. Helen was a teacher for nearly thirty years, working as a SENCO in a large comprehensive school, as an advisory teacher for IT and as teacher-in-charge of a pupil referral unit. She considers these experiences to have been invaluable in my writing. Helen originally left teaching with the idea of taking a term off, but her husband David was overburdened with (boring) writing work so she helped him out - and has been writing ever since.
