I’m Helen Deasy, a writer, illustrator, and teacher, currently living in Virginia with my husband, son, and two chocolate labs.

I grew up in New York City and spent most of my childhood summers traveling overseas with my family. Many of those summers were spent in Greece and Wales, which is where my dad and mom are from respectively. Being surrounded by ruins and castles, while immersed in Greek mythology and English lore, fueled my imagination and gave me creative purpose from an early age.

I studied early childhood education at New York University. After receiving my Master’s in Education, I had a 20-year career as an elementary school teacher. My undergrad degree is in English Literature and Fine Arts.
