Today's guest is Liverpool native and author Helen Stringer. Helen came across the pond to the west coast to attend film school and work in the film industry.
Now a resident of the Bay Area, Helen has entered the world of YA novels. Her book, Spellbinder features the main character Belladonna Johnson who can see ghosts. It’s a trait she’s inherited from her mother’s side of the family, like blue eyes or straight hair. And it’s a trait she could do without, because what twelve-year-old wants to be caught talking to someone invisible?
Helen has an uncanny ability to think and write in the tone young aults can relate to. Tune in as we find out what inspires her to write, how she got into the publishing industry and what advice she has for aspiring YA novelists everywhere.
She's also written the Midnight Gate. Join us as she talks about the world of young adult fantasy and what inspires her.
Joining Bill today on KOKS Live is Helen Stringer to talk about: Fear, Fright and Fantasy - Making Reading a Fearless Experience for Kids!
Frightful entertainment is a longstanding tradition that goes back before stories were ever written. Scary tales told by old uncle Harry, ghost stories around the campfire, Grimm’s Fairy Tales, monster movies, and murder mysteries and every horror and suspense tale on paper and film are all part of entertainment by fright. Unfortunately, younger kids who are unable to separate the tale from the truth are also exposed, and often truly frightened by media and second-hand tales from older kids. How do we make fearless sense of the realistic non-reality of stories that are made to scare kids senseless? Ask a storyteller!
A storyteller since her Liverpool, England childhood, Helen Stringer’s first job was researching the family history of the Earls of Sefton at their estate, Croxteth Hall. The vast, empty old mansion, opened to the public for tours, became a the buildings in her books. In America, Helen attended film school, worked in the entertainment industry and then at an entertainment law firm. Like so many writers, her writing was done second shift. While working and learning how the industry works, Helen began working on SPELLBINDER, getting great advice from a partner in the firm. Helen now lives in a barn at the back of her parents’ house with a bunch of cats and a ton of books. Her books, Spellbinder and Belladonna are intended to stir the imagination of middle-schoolers on either side of the pond.

God In the Midst otherwise known as G.I.T.M or GITM is an apostolic ministry whose charge is to help encourage, edify and equip the people of God who are called to Home Churches, Small Churches and Para Church ministries. Home or house Churches usually have 20 people or less, Small Churches are up to 100 adults and Para Church ministries could be Bible Studies, Prayer groups, men or women’s ministries that are not Churches in and of themselves but walk alongside the Church. We are featuring one Home, Small or Para Church ministry each month by interviewing them. We hope that as you hear them tell their personal testimonies, share with us their history and current activities, the Lord will confirm what He has placed on your heart or it may encourage you to step out boldly …it may even catapult you to that next dimension in the Lord & ministry.
