The next author in our series on the Helix Review interviews Harly White, a biography and memoir writer who also writes poetry, songs, stories, short and long, and works based on fairy tales. Her latest book, The Autobiography of a Granada Cat: As told to Harley White, White weaves the tale (no pun intended) of a stray cat inhabiting the steep winding, cobbled streets of the AlbayzÃn, Granada. When an American expatriate couple adopts her, life events, art, history, vivid imagery and deep heart-felt experiences ensue. The book is marvelously laid out for the reader to soak in, feel, suffer, and enjoy through her experiences.
White originally used the Helix review to put her writing to the test. She notes that she is very confident in the work she puts out, “I have complete faith in this my book and am willing to go to any length to ascertain this is, in fact, true.” After completing the review White noted that she learned some very interesting things about the book and her writing style that would, “help any writer.”

About the Helix Review
Back in May we launched an experimental new offering called Helix, and dubbed it The Personality Test for Your Book. Helix is powered by The Book Genome Project, a massive database of over 100,000 of the world’s best-known books. And basically, it gives you a way to upload your manuscript and get back an incredibly rich and unbiased perspective on your book.
Lulu authors are currently using Helix to gain a better understanding of their book for marketing purposes, and in some cases to gain insight into their writing style. For the first time, we’ve caught up with some of the earliest Helix Review customers to hear more about their book and writing style and what they hoped to learn from Helix.
If you are an author that has used Helix and would like to be featured in the future, please tell us about your experience here.
