Hélène Dubois is a historian and writer. She has lived in Spain, the Netherlands, Italy, and the United States and has travelled extensively through other countries. The way a historic event can be valued differently by different cultures, countries, or generations fascinates her and is a constant in her writing.

Hélène Dubois currently lives in a small town in the Netherlands with her husband. Sometimes she can be caught sitting in a café with her laptop, either at home or abroad. In that case her husband will probably be fishing close by.
