Memoirs of a Dilettante

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.

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.
