Helen Rutter

Helen Rutter lives in Bamford near Sheffield and has worked as an actress for many years. In recent years, she has written and performed her own work. The idea for her first novel, My Name is Billy Plimpton, came from her son Lenny who has a stammer. She wanted to write the book that he would love to read. She hopes that children will be able to relate to feeling unheard, different from the rest and unable to find their voice.
