Helen Peters

The Farm Beneath the Water

Hay Festival 2015, 
Helen Peters is author of The Secret Hen House Theatre and its sequel, The Farm Beneath the Water. As well as sharing the story of how Hannah has to save the family farm with her theatrical talents, she explains how her real-life experiences growing up on a family farm inspire her stories and how she turns the farm itself into a ‘character’ in her novels – with lots of authentic mud-squelching, pig-oinking, and chicken-clucking happening in the background.
