America ‘s Foremost Hintologist

Heloise , whose seven-days-a-week column is syndicated by King Features to more than 500 newspapers in the United States and internationally has also written eleven books which have sold millions of copies. She is a contributing editor and writes a monthly column for Good Housekeeping  magazine (“Household Helpline”). A frequent guest on network and local talk shows, she is also the featured speaker at conventions and on the lecture circuit.

Heloise can also be heard on the her own radio national show, so check out her website for a station near you!

The New York Daily News called her “the high priestess of household hints.” The Christian Science Monitor acknowledged she’s, “Still the nation’s dragon slayer of household tasks.” And dubbed her “Household hints tipster extraordinaire.” Working Woman magazine says “…there’ll always be a market for practical advice, whether you read it in the paper or download it to your hard drive.” As author of the internationally popular column, “Hints from Heloise,” she’s undoubtedly the world’s most famous name in household advice.

Heloise grew into her role as columnist at the knee of her legendary mother who began writing the first “Hints from Heloise” for the Honolulu Advertiser in 1959. Her daughter quickly learned how to tackle problems that are common to everyday households, and, while still in her teens, worked full-time during summer vacations on the increasingly popular column. Although she planned to teach math, she decided after graduating from Southwest Texas State University (now Texas State University) that writing “Hints from Heloise” was what she really wanted to do.

She devotes considerable time and energy to charitable organizations, making frequent appearances for Battered Women’s Shelters, the USO and the American Heart Association. The National Mental Health Association honored Heloise with its first Mental Health Mission Award for her outstanding contribution to mental health education of the public through her column. Other awards include Southwest Texas State University (now Texas State University) Alumni Association Distinguished Alumnus Award and the Women in Communications Headliner Award.
