Meet Helen Vivienne Fletcher! HelenFletcher

Helen Vivienne Fletcher is a children’s and young adult author, spoken word poet and award-winning playwright. She discovered her passion for writing for young people while working as a youth support worker and now helps children find their own passion for storytelling through her work as a creative writing teacher.

Helen is featuring Underwater!

9780473432416Bailey has a lot of secrets, and a lot of scars, both of which she’d like to keep hidden. Unfortunately, Pine Hills Resort isn’t the kind of place where anyone can keep anything hidden for long. When Bailey arrives, she just wants to get through summer quietly, spending as much time in the water as she can. Then she meets Adam. Bailey’s not looking to make friends, but Adam isn’t easy to ignore. Neither is his ex-girlfriend, Clare. As Bailey grows closer to Adam, she draws Clare’s animosity. Will Bailey be able to keep her past a secret, or will Clare discover and reveal the sinister truth about how Bailey really got her scars?

    • While reading minds can definitely be used as an advantage at times, I’m not so sure I’d want to hear what other’s are thinking. Seeing what Sookie Stackhouse went through in True Blood pretty much convinced me of that 😀

  • If I had one super power it would definitely be healing!! I would heal myself but I would heal anyone that is hurting physically, mentally and in any way they were hurting.

  • If I could have any power it would be to fly. Would make taking trips so much less expensive! XD But, if that’s my power can I choose to have a nice set of angel wings to go with it? Asking for a friend.

    Thanks for the chance!

    • Flying and angel wings are two of my favorite things. So much so, I filled an entire island with winged magical creatures in one of my books, all because a sorceress loved wings and wanted it on all her animals. And I gave my main character the ability to fly, then took the power away later. She wasn’t too happy about that. Can’t say as I blame her 😉

  • “If you could have a magical power, what would it be?” To gain lost youth, great health, and incredible beauty!

  • If I could have any magical power it would be the power to create illusions, like Adelina Amouteru from The Young Elites!

  • I hope I’m blessed enough to win this. The bracelet and the coloring book and markers look AMAZING. I don’t really want magical powers. Maybe mutant powers, like phasing through things like Shadowcat. Or Captain Marvel’s powers from the new movie.

  • I would love to have the power of teleportation to be able to move around and get away quick! Also maybe super healing powers would be nice. Thanks for being part of the hunt!

    • My characters get to use teleportation in my latest book. Love the power, but it’s a challenge to describe, what with the ripping apart of your atoms and then reassembling 😉

  • I think I would like the power of healing. Or talking to animals. I have quite a few pets and I’d like to be able to talk to them!

  • Being able to fly would be absolutely amazing… But I’d also love to be able to talk to animals or control plants. The druid vibe is very appealing XD

  • I can’t entirely decide because I would want three different abilities. I want to be able to speak to animals, teleport wherever I want (and bring people with me), and I want the ability to read super fast but still 100% comprehend what I have read.

    • Invisibility is a good one, so long as your clothes become invisible too. I’d hate to think I had to slink around naked to keep from being seen. Not to mention how cold I’d get. I really hate being cold 😉

  • I would totally, 100%, want the power to control the wind. It has SO MANY practical applications. Need a cool breeze on a hot day? I got you covered. Left your phone on the counter but just sat down? No Problem, I’ll get a small wind to carry that to you. Somebody mocking you with a far-too-perfect hairdo? WOOSH, not anymore. I’ve also decided I’d also be able to fly, breath underwater, create invisible walls of solid air . . . and be a certified Squaller in the Grisha Army of Ravka.

    • LOL 😀 I love all those small practical applications of wind power! Who says control over the wind always has to be on some grand epic level, right?

    • Ooh, I like this one! I’m always doing research for my stories, so knowing the answer would be such a time saver. I wonder if this superpower includes witty comebacks? I’m forever coming up with those HOURS later, which as we know, is completely useless by then 😀

    • Agreed, telekinesis is super handy. Especially since it would keep us from constantly having to reach for the remote control 😉

  • If it’s a super power to overcome an enemy I’d definitely want the power to beat anxiety and depression and also help people beat anxiety and depression as I’ve struggled with both for 16 years. If it’s just a fun super power I think it’d be cool to talk to animals.

    • Now there’s an awesome super power! Anxiety’s been one of my demons too and I would love the power to kick its ass once and for all >:(

  • I believe I would like the power to mend the broken. I could fix those broken both mentally, physically or spiritually. I would be a healer but more than a regular one.

  • When you’re old, pretty much everything hurts your back. Sleep on the wrong pillow, back hurts. Bend down to pick up a pen, back hurts. Uncharacteristically large sneeze, back hurts. With the power to heal, I could fix this. I could fix it for everyone.

  • I’ve changed my mind a million times about this but I think it would be fun to have the ability to turn back time (cue catchy Cher song now!)

    • True enough. I wouldn’t mind turning back time so I could have a few redo’s. But then you have to wonder if making certain changes might just keep some of the really good stuff that happened in the past from happening. And therein lies the reason I don’t write time travel stories. Keeping track of all those potential possibilities hurts my brain 😉

  • Teleportation because I’d love to travel around the world! Thank you so much for the chance! Those are some really beautiful prizes ♥

    • Healing seems to be the most popular choice so far. It may not be the flashiest of super powers (unless we glow and get angel wings whenever we use it), but it’s definitely what every single one of us needs 🙂

  • I would definitly want the power to heal, others and myself. I’ve been really sick since high school and the hospital has become like a second home…to be able to heal myself and others who are suffering would be awesome!!

  • I think super speed would be great – to get all of my chores and work done in record time and have more time to read every book on my huge TBR list 😀

  • I haven’t read the series yet since I just found out about it. But if I had a magical power, it would be to fly, especially on a broomstick! 😀

    • I like the look of flying on a broom too. But do you ever wonder if riding on the stick part of the broom is horribly uncomfortable?

  • If I would have a super power, I’ll like to be able to control everything that has a connection with nature such as plants, water, animal, etc. It would fantastic to have wild animal by my side.
