Helen Grant was born in Westminster, London in 1964.
She has always loved writing and as a child would get into trouble for writing stories under the desk during maths lessons. After her degree in Classics at Oxford University, Helen went on to pursue a career in marketing.
Helen lives in Scotland where she moved to from Brussels. Previously she lived in Bad Münstereifel, in the Eifel area of Germany, with her husband, two children and their cat. She maintains stong ties with Bad Münstereifel and its incredible ghoulish legends.
All three of Helen's standalone YA titles have been long-listed for the CILIP Carnegie Medal, with her début, The Vanishing of Katharina Linden, being short-listed.
Urban Legends, the final book in the Forbidden Spaces trilogy, was published in March 2015.
Too Near the Dead
Sometimes it’s terrifying, loving someone this much... For Fen Munro and her fiancé James, it is a dream come true: an escape from London to a beautiful house in the stunning Perthshire countryside. Barr Dubh house is modern, a building with no past at all. But someone walks the grounds, always dressed in lavender. Under a lichenous stone in an abandoned graveyard, a hideous secret lies buried. And at night, Fen is tormented by horrifying dreams. Someone wants Fen’s happiness, and nothing is going to stop them - not even death...
