Helen Walmsley-Johnson is an author and columnist. Her debut book, Look What You Made Me Do is a candid and utterly gripping memoir of how she was trapped by a smiling abuser, not once but twice. It is a vital guide to recognizing, understanding and surviving this sinister form of abuse and its often terrible legacy. It is also an inspirational account of how one woman found the courage to walk away. She has also written about middle age in The Invisible Woman, which grew out of her popular Guardian column ‘The Vintage Years’. Before beginning her column, she worked for the Daily Telegraph and as Alan Rusbridger’s PA at the Guardian. She lives in Rutland.
