About LC Helms

Do you dream about and love to travel? What about traveling alone? How about eating out, going to the movies, or exploring your community or state completely on your own? Maybe you're like me; you have the desire for solo adventure, but fear has gotten in your way.


After realizing I needed to listen to my own advice and stretch myself, even through Covid, I decided it was time I got out there and used the aloneness of doing to get to know myself again. Follow me on a soul-journey as I get reacquainted with myself. I'll be using the techniques I talk about on my blogs and in my counseling sessions as I learn to enjoy the world around me on my own.


I grew up with a love for books. It all started with my mother who read beautiful stories to me every night. I loved getting lost inside the written word and began writing  when I was twelve years old.


By the time I had my first child I had published in trade magazines, poetry anthologies, and had written a first novel, all under the pseudonym Carol Lorin. But life happened and the journey I was experiencing didn’t have time for words. I never pursued the publishing of that first novel, and strangely, can’t even find the manuscript now.

Years later my son became a science-fiction author and wouldn’t stop nagging until I put pen to paper again. I did, and my love for words was reborn. I haven't stopped writing since. Now, I use words and face fear through adventure as I find my way back home. I enjoy crafting short stories, writing blogs, and am editing my second, first novel. I also want to live my stories with the grit and tenacity I give to my characters.

My hopes are that readers will fall in love with their own journey and self-discovery and gain insight into their own struggles as they travel with me and overcome fear. Most importantly, I hope to leave an indelible truth of hope and faith in God with my readers and, through his light and love, help others find their own way home..
