About Helena Pielichaty

Helena Pielichaty (pronounced Pierre-li-hatty) has written over thirty books for children. Her latest series, Girls FC, is set around a fictional girls' football team so she was delighted to be asked to write her first non-fiction book for HarperCollins on a subject close to her heart. Helena's auntie played women's football in the 1950s and her daughter played from the age of 9 to 26. Helena herself has never played football but was an enthusiastic, if inept, wing defence on her school netball team.
