Author: Helen Brain
Helen Brain is an award winning children’s book writer. One day she writes a children’s story so dark it is considered ‘not suitable for children.’ She decides to write a book for adults, intertwining the children’s story with memories of her childhood.
Helen is five when her 15-year-old brother first asked her to play ‘25’. When her parents discover her blood stained underwear, they insist she must have ‘sat in red cold-drink’.
Helen is forced to stifle her guilt and shame, as the family guards its terrible secret. Finally, thirty five years later Helen finds the strength to confront her family about her brother’s abuse. Here be Lions describes her courageous journey towards healing and restoration.
Helen Brain has published 14 books in English and Afrikaans for children and young adults. They include the best-selling Fly Cemetery and other Juicy Stories and Tamara, which won the 1999 ATKV Prize for ages 13-15. She lives in Cape Town with her husband and sons and teaches drama part-time.
