Helena Bross

Helena Bross was born in Stockholm 1950. She got off to a slow start in school and struggled to learn how to read and write. In the third and fourth grade she attended so called reading classes and had a brilliant teacher which did wonders. As soon as she learned to write she started to write stories, plays and diaries. She has now written several books for 7-9 year olds, and she has been working as a junior school teacher for many years.
