Heleen Kist is a Dutch, formerly globetrotting career woman who fell in love with a Scotsman and his country, and now writes about its (sometimes scary) people from her garden office in Glasgow. She was chosen as an up-and-coming new author at Bloody Scotland 2018. Her debut, 'In Servitude', won the silver medal for Best European Fiction at the Independent Publishers Book Awards in the USA and was shortlisted for The Selfies awarded at London Book Fair. Her feminist thriller 'Stay Mad, Sweetheart' was a finalist in the Next Generation Indie Book Awards and won third place in the inaugural Book Bloggers' Novel of the Year award 2020. 'What I Hid From You' is her third novel, set next door to 'In Servitude' - for fun.
"What a book! Nail-biting tension on every page, alongside a poignant portrayal of a mother, wife, daughter and a woman juggling it all. Highly recommend!" -Lauren North; "An addictively tense read." -Lesley Kara; "A gripping story in which a clever, strong, loyal woman finds herself momentarily vulnerable, with disastrous consequences. Realistic, relateable, and frightening." -SE Lynes; "An absorbing tale of secrets and lies with a delicious sting in the tail." -Caroline England
