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.

The Lady’s Choice Crisis Intervention and Resource Center, founded in 2003 in Fayetteville, North Carolina by Helen Hooper, is exclusively dedicated to the teaching, building, and empowering of strong women of all ages.
Because women need to be given the proper tools, life skills, and strategies in order to make positive decisions, The Lady’s Choice is there for them no matter their age. Becoming a woman can make a young lady vulnerable and open to life’s unfair attacks and unseen obstacles. Without the proper guidance, education, and cultivation of women, our society will lose valuable leaders of tomorrow and will continue to lose precious mothers and daughters to the negative influences and tumultuous issues that plague women today.
The Lady’s Choice Crisis Intervention and Resource Center promotes high scholastics, mental/physical wellness, morals, and ethical standards, the foundation of our program. With our primary goal of preparing every woman for a perpetual life of success, The Center offers the opportunity for teens to develop a positive self-image while gaining life management, leadership, and communication skills. We assist ladies in making positive decisions concerning their personal endeavors in order to become effective future leaders, successful business women, precise decision-makers, knowledgeable wives, and nurturing mothers.
Our activities include Spring and Fall Tea Events, "Life Support" for Women, Lady's First Mentoring for young adult women, Motivational, Educational Speakers and workshops.
