    I had to wait until both my parents were dead, both my marriages were over, and all my children were too old to be traumatized by anything I could do in order to write my first novel for adults Spunk a post apocalyptic, dystopian, urban fantasy about an ian world and the woman who dares to defy its authority As Helen H Moore I ve sold thousands of books for children and educators, for such publishers as , Mondo, and Central Recovery Press, but this new venture required a new pen name Helen O Reilly I m branching out into self publishing and self actualizing simultaneously As the traditional publishing industry morphs, self publishing has lost its stigma it s no longer vanity publishing it s indie publishing this is where the cool kids are A lifelong goal has been to expand my writing repertoire to include long form fiction in other words, I ve published children s fiction, poetry, self help, educational and non fiction books, but THE NOVEL has been my white whale my Moby Dick which is also a novel Now the writing is done and the second part of the goal is all that remains to market, to market Spunk than a book, it s an attitude it s sexy, sassy, irreverent, fun, sly, and wicked It s the thing that life is made of, and it keeps life interesting, exciting, and fun Spunk is Life.

  • A satisfying tale! SPUNK, A Fable, is quite a brave choice for a title, and this bravery reflects in the tale tackled. As a lesbian I've read at least two of the sort of 'modern ian tribe' fantasies prevalent in LGBT genre (in the early 90's) which SPUNK is an intelligent and astute spin on. Such all-female societies were ideal if not always utopian, purposed to elevate and overtly empower its female characters (and maybe make other statements). With SPUNK, Helen O'Reilly intends none of these t [...]


  • From PW Select:"O'Reilly delivers a fascinating novel about a group of women and girls who, in postapocalyptic New York City, belong to an ian society that believes men are no longer a necessity in the world. In an effort to survive, the women—who live in a forest that now covers Manhattan—capture men to perpetuate their community, only to exterminate them when they have served their purpose. O'Reilly's characters are well drawn, and her prose straightforward and startling: "At first, and at [...]


  • Spunk is an interesting and highly original view of a post-apocalyptic world where within a huge forest that has consumed much of New York City and its suburbs, a community of women flourishes. Together, they work to sustain the community. They farm, they hunt, they teach, they maintain shelters. In fact, this world of women seems to do quite well without men.But they do need men in order to perpetuate the community. As men wander into the forest, they are trapped and hunted and put to good use. [...]


  • This is my friend, Helen's, book. I really liked it. Post apocolyptic setting which I love and the action was well done. I got caught up in it really quickly and was interested the whole time. I love books that do that. Great job Helen!


  • In a post-apocalyptic world, can women live without men? Hell yeah, according to the tale told by Helen O’Reilly. Women can provide all the necessities of life living in the forest that used to be New York City.Men do serve a purpose, however. The women trap and hunt the species to immortalize their community. Once the deed is done, their mantra is, waste not, want not. I recommend Spunk by Helen O’Reilly for readers who enjoy a good fable sprinkled with humor.
