Hi, I’m Helen Johnson, Yorkshire freelance writer.
For many years, I’ve written magazine articles with a country flavour, usually illustrated with my own photographs. I have particular interests in rural lifestyle, Yorkshire, crafts, nature conservation, farming and food, heritage and landscape.
I live in Appleton Wiske, a village in Yorkshire. It’s a great village to live in, because it’s full of people who care, who give their time and effort to make make Appleton Wiske such a good place to live.
Yorkshire is a unique and much-loved part of England. It’s famous not only for its wide range of beautiful landscapes, but also for the character of its people; stoic, hard working, understated, but proud of their achievements.
I have been inspired by the people and places of Yorkshire to write a historic novel set here. It’s a long undertaking – lots of research – but one day, I shall complete it.
My journalism and short stories have appeared in many publications,
