Meet Helen Iles
Children’s Author/Illustrator


As a mother, grandmother and great grandmother, Helen also writes for children of all ages. When she sees a need for lessons to be learnt, she provides those lessons through picture books and early readers.

Helen has written for the older reader – Penny’s Silver Dragon

And for the younger child – We Are Different, You and I, using magic realism as the medium for illustrations, The Dog Who Wanted to Fly, and Nannie Wants a Puppy, using mixed medium.

Released in February 2020 is Have You Ever ... (in soft cover) and I'm Glad I'm Australian (in hard cover), which encourages children to enjoy the nature of the outback with Outback Sam.

Donna’s Wishing Well and You Are Not Alone will be released in 2024.



Helen has recently illustrated the informative books by  retired Family Court Mediator Lynley Barnett:

Sophie's Story, Peter's Story, Zac's Story, Tommas's Story, and Tips from the Mediator - for divorcing couples ... 

as well as Marion's Smith's conservation story, Possum Reserve.
