Helen J. Darling is the author of two humorous women's fiction novels, I'll Know Me When I Find Me and Terms and Conditions, and a comic novella, However This Is To Inform You. She lives in North Carolina with her husband, two children, a codependent beagle, and a cat who owns them all. When she's not writing or spending time with her family, she dabbles in hobbies from photography and painting to gardening and home renovations. She reads three or four books at a time. She also keeps bees. That's why she takes so long to write her novels.
