Helene Young lives in Trinity Beach, on the edge of the Great Barrier Reef in North Queensland. Her work as a senior captain with a major regional airline takes her all over the east coast of Australia. She is as passionate about aviation as she is about writing. 'I've been flying for twenty-two years, which gives me an """"office"""" with the most spectacular views in Australia and I never get tired of looking down at the wonderful landscape'. Shattered Sky is her second novel.
