About Helen:
Helen Thorpe is an award-winning journalist who lives in Denver, Colorado. Her magazine work has been published in The New York Times Magazine, The New Yorker, Texas Monthly, and 5280.

Her first book, JUST LIKE US: THE TRUE STORY OF FOUR MEXICAN GIRLS COMING OF AGE IN AMERICA, was published in 2009. It won the Colorado Book Award and was named one of the best books of the year by the Washington Post.

Her second book, SOLDIER GIRLS: THE BATTLES OF THREE WOMEN AT HOME AND AT WAR, was published in 2014. TIME named it the number one nonfiction book of the year, and The New York Times said: “Through minute, almost claustrophobic, detail — using military and medical records, as well as therapists’ notes and personal correspondence —Thorpe achieves a staggering intimacy with her subjects.”
