About the Author

Helena Rogers grew up and spent the first part of her life in Trinidad. She grew up in the city and as a young child were thrilled by the stories and adventures that her uncle related about his dramatic experiences with dangerous animals out hunting in the forests, whenever he visited them in the city. She was also fascinated by the stories her father told about his adventures at sea in storm conditions particularly on one occasion when his ship, The Sea Hawk was stuck in a whirlpool and he and his crew was trapped for three days before being rescued. He worked as a coast guard as captain of his vessel and spent months away from home when her family had to struggle without him and found it very difficult. As a young adult she migrated to Europe, trained and worked as a registered nurse but took an interest in teaching from her experience of teaching her own children. She subsequently qualified as a teacher obtaining a teaching degree. But during all this time her love of reading and writing inspired her to start writing short pieces about her experiences and observations. She also had one of her poems published by the National Library of Poetry.
