From businesswoman to “big kid” and everything in between, Helen Ksypka’s personality runs the gamut. It’s the same with Helen’s writing. It spans a broad range, encompassing an array of genres and styles.
Penning her first poem, at age seven, sparked Helen’s muse; at age fourteen she emerged as an award-winning essayist, and a year later her songwriting talent bloomed.
By adulthood, she catapulted to professional status, writing TV spots and comedy sketches, ad copy, nationally syndicated radio bits and numerous other formats including articles, expert advice, commentaries, and humor.
Helen’s scriptwriting ability led her to the California based publisher, “Children’s Story Scripts”. (Story/scripts ore read in group settings, helping kids overcome performance anxiety.) Helen’s titles include: Dave’s Unhappy Teeth, The Determined Maiden, Booga the Caveman Discovers Oil, and Oh, Please, Not Opera…; Learning LaBoheme. The latter proves to be very popular because Helen found a way to make opera so much fun that kids actually enjoy it.
Also a prize-winning poet, Helen’s humorous poems have been published in several anthologies. Both kids and teachers profess their fovorites: Professor Von Shtoot’s Wacky Inventions, Uncle Dave’s Car, Silly Square Dance, My Family of Dinosaurs…
At the present time, Helen’s writing continues to run the gamut from picture books, self-help, how-to, radio theater, poetry, and songwriting.
Helen resides in the U.S. in Southern Maine, where the ocean, woods, and mountains keep her balanced and filled with inspiration.
