 Close-Up Talk Radio Spotlights Author Helen Olian


Albuquerque, NM – Returning to Close-Up Talk Radio is author Helen Olian. Fascinated with writing and animals since her youth, Helen wrote countless stories for her own viewing. After suffering a serious accident and becoming wheelchair bound, Helen decided to turn her passion into magnificent tales for all to see.


Over her professional career Helen has completed 13 books of various themes, 8 of which are “doggie” themed including The Doggy Trip and The Doggy Farm. Helen’s most successful work to date is The Aliens, which was featured on a list of top 100 bestsellers on “This is such a tremendous honor to be able to do what I love and see people appreciate it. I write animal themed rhyme verse books for children and it’s exciting to see their reactions at book signings,” exclaims Olian.


Helen is currently completing the ninth and final installment of doggy-themed books entitled The Master Doggy. “To wrap up the series, this tale follows a down-to-earth dog whose boss celebrates his birthday at the office, has a hill near his house and becomes master of the hill. It sticks with the rhyme verse patterns with wonderful illustrations to match. He becomes master yet remains humble. It doesn’t go to his head. It’s a great way for me to finish the series. It’s time to move on.”


Sticking with her youth targeted books, Helen is also working on a bedtime children’s book to help kids sleep at night. Helen’s books are wonderfully illustrated and easily relatable to children ages eight and up. All of Helen’s works are available through Maypole Books, which she founded in her home state of New Mexico.

Helen Olian will be featured on Close-Up Talk Radio with host Jim Masters at The two-part series will air on Monday February 4th and February 11th. All shows will air at 7pm EST on their respective dates. For more information about Helen Olian email
