Helen O’Mahony

Helen studied social sciences at University in Northern Ireland and went on to be a social worker in London, shortly after graduation. She later changed career, having returned to study pharmacy as a mature student at the Chelsea School of Pharmacy in London. Following graduation she worked as a hospital pharmacist in St Albans, Hemel Hempstead and Hitchin.  Helen moved to Bluntisham, Cambridgeshire in the year 2000, with her husband David, a senior distribution manager in a large insurance company. As a hobby she took up creative writing, attending evening classes at the local college. There she met Joan Tucker, from Needingworth, with whom she set up the Scribblers’ Writing group, in 2011. The Scribblers meet several times a month and are a talented group of people. Their regular activities include fun writing exercises, competitions, poetry, short stories and novel writing, all of which are thriving. Their creativity is fuelled with tea and Joan’s home-made lemon cake. Helen particularly enjoys writing short stories and poetry, finding inspiration from nature, childhood memories and personal experiences.
