Unapologetic- Tales of the Original Party Crasher is the heartfelt story of a daughter processing the loss of her mother.
While she examines and celebrates her mother’s story through clues and memories left behind, she weaves an entertaining account of a complicated, enigmatic woman who was equal parts Holly Golightly, Auntie Mame, Mrs. Maisel, and dare we say, Moira Rose from Schitt's Creek. Throw into that mix a scorpion with stinging wit and, at times, a lost little girl... and you've got Unapologetic.
This funny and poignant memoir-biography follows the author’s mother through life from crashing parties and hobnobbing with celebrities in NYC, to the crashing waves of Hawaii, and back full circle to the city she loved.
Including all of the characters she met in between and the lessons she taught her daughter along the way, the book is a portrait of a life lived truly and unapologetically. In telling it, Helsing explores the forces that shape all of our lives, from geography and chance to sacrifice and deep, compassionate, enduring love.

I found this video of my mother and I dancing in our dining room back in Hawaii. I was maybe about 19 or 20 or so and she had just returned home to Hawaii after having her liver transplant on the mainland. Her stomach had been so bloated from so much built up bile prior to her transplant that afterwards, she was so happy to have "lost the bloat" after her transplant that she would say "she had finally had her baby." She was always joking and so full of life and I am so grateful to have this clip
