Originally from Staffordshire, Henna now lives in Aberdeen with her husband and two children. She is an experienced youth worker and school chaplain, with a particular interest in interfaith dialogue. Henna is also the Chair of Trustees for Hope Counselling Aberdeen, a social enterprise which aims to make professional counselling available to anyone in need, regardless of their means.
Henna is undertaking a PhD at the University of Aberdeen entitled, "How do autistic people describe the experiences of prayer and anxiety, and what do they perceive to be the relationship between the two?" The project is funded by the Scottish Graduate School for Arts and Humanities. The research will be driven by the autistic community, using Participatory Action Research methods to facilitate a fresh look at the theology and practice of prayer operant in Christian worship and among faith communities.
Under the pen-name H. C. Dill, Henna is the author of one novel for teenage readers, Twin Truths, and is also the author and series editor for the But... Bible Study Series for Young People.
