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. ‘Killer Bodies’ is her fourth novel, inspired by her hatred of exercise.
She was chosen as an up-and-coming new author at Bloody Scotland 2018. Her novels have been finalists in a variety of awards, both in the UK and USA, and she yearns to some day ‘be the bride’.
‘In Servitude’ received silver medal for Best European Fiction at the Independent Publishers Book Awards 2019 in the USA and was a finalist in the inaugural The Selfies awarded at London Book Fair in 2019.
‘Stay Mad, Sweetheart’ came in third at the BBNYA and was a finalist in the Next Generation Indie Book Awards in the USA.
