About Helen Grant

Helen Grant is a highly acclaimed YA author. Her debut novel attracted praise from critics and readers alike and was shortlisted for the CILIP Carnegie Medal. Born in London in 1964, Helen showed an early leaning towards the arts after being told off for writing stories under the desk during maths lessons. She went on to read Classics at St Hugh's College, Oxford, and then worked in marketing for ten years to fund her love of travelling before returning to writing. Helen now lives near Brussels with her husband, her two children and their two cats.show more

Review quote

"After her powerful debut, The Vanishing of Katharina Linden, Grant has established herself as a major talent in YA fiction and this menacing story of stalking and murder simply confirms that... Grant builds characters and tension with smooth confidence, and her dialogue is fresh and contemporary. The whole package adds up to the compulsive first adventure in a trilogy'" -- Sally Morris * Daily Mail * "Silent Saturday is another great book from Helen Grant, who keeps getting better and better with each book. If you enjoy YA thrillers then Silent Saturday - as for that matter her previous three books - comes highly recommended." * A Fantastical Librarian * "I loved Silent Saturday. I also loved Helen Grant's earlier German novels, but something tells me I love this one even more. Silent Saturday is the first of Helen's new Belgian trilogy, and if a horror thriller can be described as comfortable, then this is it . . . Go find a sofa to hide behind. Not that it will help, but you'll be under the impression that you're in control." * Bookwitch * "Grant writes with a fierce intelligence and sympathy for adolescents" -- Amanda Craig * Guardian * "It had me hooked from the very start - Helen Grant's prose is beautifully spare, not a word wasted but still deliciously elegant and descriptive" * Awfully Big Reviews *show more
