Helen Sedgwick

Helen Sedgwick is an author, editor, amateur gardener and former research physicist. She spent several years working as a bio-engineer developing new technologies for cancer research but has also worked, at various times, as a musician, a dinner lady, a physics tutor, and the MD of Cargo Publishing.

Given her time again she'd like to be an archaeologist which perhaps explains something about her crime book, When the Dead Come Calling.

She grew up in London and now lives, writes, and grows vegetables in the Scottish Highlands with her partner, photographer Michael Gallacher, their 18-month-old daughter, and their rescue chickens. She has a solid plan for surviving the apocalypse.
