Helen Kelly Writer
Welcome to my website. I am a playwright and novelist.
I have written plays for casts of one and plays for casts of sixty. I have been writing plays for so long that I no longer feel like I am having a seizure in the rehearsal room. I am a member of Bold Text Playwrights http://boldtextcollective.wordpress.com. We produce our own work with the help of Birmingham Rep and other venues in the West Midlands.
I don’t often feel like it but I must be a bit of a brainbox because I have an M.A. with Distinction in Playwriting and a PhD.
I am in the process of sending out my first novel Monkey Boots, a twisted chicklit murder mystery, and I am currently in receipt of an Arts Council grant to research and develop a second novel - an epic love story spanning the Irish War of Independence and the Russian Revolution. I am greatly helped in this gargantuan task by the mighty Tindal St Fiction Group http://tindalstreetfictiongroup.com/.
I live in Birmingham with my partner and 7 year old son.
I like trees.
