Today I’m going a few easy miles with Helen Lundstrom Erwin- runner, foodie, and author.
Running and writing have saved her and fed her soul.
James’ Journey is her newest work of historical fiction, which delves into life during the slavery era.
Something Good Coming From Something Bad
From the sudden death of Helen’s mother, a passion for running was born.
Running literally saved her and turned out to be her tool in dealing with grief.
Helen frequently runs in Sweden, which is a runner’s paradise.
Runners can explore anywhere and venture off the beaten path because there is no private land.

History has always fascinated Helen and provided content for her writing.
James’ Journey is a work of historical fiction about the son of a slave owner that becomes a conductor of the Underground Railroad.
The “why” behind history and the mentality of people in a particular era was her inspiration.
Why did people think owning slaves was OK and who were the people that helped to change that thinking?
Helen answers some of those questions through a combination of historical and fictional characters.
