Helen Power grew up in Campbell Town (Tasmania) but moved to Hobart in 1902 and became a distinguished member of the literary community there. She ran a guest house with her sister, and contributed poems and articles to the Bulletin, the Lone Hand, the Australasian and other journals, especially during the years 1912-1932. Her work has also appeared in several anthologies. She was the granddaughter of an early Surveyor-General of Tasmania, Robert Power.
