On September 17, 2014

Helen Brown grew up in New Zealand where she became an award-winning newspaper and magazine columnist as well as a popular scriptwriter. Helen's memoirs Cleo and After Cleo became international bestsellers and are available in a vast array of countries and languages. A New York Times bestseller, Cleo is also currently being made into a film by the producers of The Whale Rider.
