Launching As the Sycamore Grows, my third book, in October.


Background Information

           Jennie Helderman is an Alabama-born-and-bred writer transplanted to Atlanta in her gray-haired years. She entered Alabama politics as a pre-schooler, campaigning for her dad; broke a glass ceiling at age ten as the first girl to page in the Alabama legislature, the same year she wrote and produced her first play.

Since then she's co-authored two books, chaired the editorial committee for a 120,000 circulation quarterly, and written magazine articles and short stories. Her shortest story was nominated for the Pushcart Prize for 2007. As the Sycamore Grows, a nonfiction narrative about abuse, loss and redemption launches in October.

 She's taught school in rural Alabama, done social work, led community projects and promoted women's issues. For six years she chaired the board which oversees Alabama's DHR, the largest state agency with a $1.6 billion budget and the one that oversees all issues of abuse in the state.

She’s climbed Mt. Vesuvius, worked at Pompeii, hiked across Spain and rafted the Grand Canyon. If she doesn't learn to write faster, she'll never tell all the stories crawling through her memory.
