Helen Harris "Han" Nolan (born 1956 in Birmingham) is the author of several award-winning novels for young adults.

Nolan was born in Birmingham but moved with her family to New York when she was 9 months old. She excelled at creative writing and dance in school, and earned her bachelor's degree as a dance education major from the University of North Carolina in Greensboro and her Masters in dance from Ohio State University.

She abandoned her dancing career to focus on writing in order to be able to spend time with her husband and three adopted children.

Nolan resides with her family in New England. She was a featured author at Alabama Bound in 2005.
