AA Abbott, Thriller Writer
AA Abbott is a pen name for Helen, author of the Trail thriller series set in London and Birmingham. Helen has been telling stories all her life, beginning with her younger siblings when she was growing up.
City life and the business world feature in Helen’s books drawing on her experience of working in cities and the corporate world. Helen is based in Bristol in the English West Country, her career in finance took her to Birmingham and the City of London. Helen frequently returns to Birmingham, a city she loves.
Helen believes research is vital when writing about something she doesn’t know. Two of her books feature an obsessive killer desperate to escape from prison. She had help with books from prison officers and policemen. Helen enjoyed her research for the Vodka Trail (and who wouldn’t!) where she spent time investigating vodka manufacture and probably sampled along the way!
Helen writes dyslexia friendly books for those who struggle with with traditional paperbacks, and frequently speaks to book groups, business networks and social circles. She enjoys reading her thrillers and short stories at live fiction events. As a member of the Alliance of Independent Authors, Bristol Fiction Writers’ Group, and Birmingham’s New Street Authors she dedicates much of her time to writing and supporting other authors.
AA Abbott will be sharing the floor with Jane Shemilt this year to speak about gritty fiction writing and her new book The Revenge Trail.
