Helga Ross says of herself:
"Though I have been writing for years, it has been little more than a year since I wrote my first poem. I picked up the threads of the dream I dropped many years ago, to write poetry. I feel like I'm starting over and in my second youth. Now I remind myself of those poets of earlier times, when art was a way of life, not necessarily a livelihood, but valid in and of itself.
In the intervening years, I shelved my liberal arts education, English Major, for a career in the business world. It served me well and now provides the means for this pursuit which I find so much more satisfying. I'm one of that spirit, 'Child of the '60s', a lover of nature, of freedom of thought, of authentic self-expression, with wide and eclectic interests and tastes which I like to reflect in my writings in all its forms.
I wasn't sure what I would write, what my niche would be when I embarked, but it wasn't long before a writer friend pointed out the poetry in my prose - and here I am."
