For just over two years, I wrote pseudo-autobiographical, ironic, post-modern stories under the name Helena Hann-Basquiat, not only writing as Helena, but living her as my online persona.
During that time, I published three books as well as two short novellas, chronicling Helena Hann-Basquiat and her niece Penny, aka Countess Penelope of Arcadia, and their misadventures and reminiscences. Sometimes absurdly humourous and other times heartbreaking, Memoirs of a Dilettante is unconventional in the best sense of the word, and will leave you entertained and wanting for more.

Sample chapters from Volume Two
All the Happy Ending You’re Going to Get
A short story about hitting rock bottom and the climb back up.
A DILETTANTE IN LOVE
A story about falling in love for the last time.
PENELOPE, COUNTESS OF ARCADIA
Spinning out of Memoirs of a Dilettante Volume Two comes the story of a villain whose foul deeds could only be dealt with within the pages of a Shakespearean style play. Critics call it a laugh-out-loud farce that you won’t want to miss.
