About Helen Baggott

Helen Baggott grew up in Swanage. Although she no longer lives in the seaside town, home is still in Dorset.

She is a freelance editor and writer. She particularly enjoys social history and local history and has written for local magazines.

Her most recent project is researching the stories behind postcards sent more than 100 years ago. The first collection of stories has been published in Posted in the Past.

"I was enthralled by the social history that you extracted from the cards: so many stories hinted at by so few words, and all waiting to be uncovered by sympathetic and subtle research." R.R., Wimborne
