About the Chimp…
Hi, I’m Helen Rhodes, from the planet Earth. I am a Thinking Chimp. I do a lot of thinking, which usually turns into writing. I am a mixture of weirdness, strangeness, oddness and swearing, as only a fucked up human can be! Come hear me at my gigs, come read me at my website, and come join me on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Share yourself with me. I’d like to know you.
Me? Well, I’ve been described as many things, but let’s stick to writing specifically, eh? Dark, surreal, strange, insightful, edgy, with a squeeze of sarcasm and a large squirt of humour. I write about human beings, the odd and the oooh. I write about life, real and unreal. I write about death, experientially and theoretically. Sometimes things rhyme, even when they’re not meant to at the time.
