Helene is the real name of this character. As with many people in the book, her presence was abbreviated to keep the manuscript down to a manageable size, unfotunately leaving chapters of her and Kathleen's wild escapades on the cutting room floor. Helene and the author met through a mutual friend in San Francisco in 1987. They have shared many crazy adventures over the decades, and Helene often provided a physical and/or emotional haven for Kathleen during her traveling years.


Helene currently lives in New York City.
