Hi! I'm Heleen, a Dutch crime writer (and strategy consultant) living in Glasgow.



My debut crime novel IN SERVITUDE came out in 2018I'm very proud of its success in various awards + reviews.


STAY MAD, SWEETHEART is  dark yet empowering feminist thriller that's had rave reviews and some shortlistings too.


WHAT I HID FROM YOU is closest to my heart: a woman who risks it all by juggling too much. 


And the furthest place you'll find me is the gym, which is the murderous setting of my latest, KILLER BODIES.


Have a look around and stay in touch through Twitter, Facebook or my newsletter.

“Kist’s brilliance lies in her ability to weave together tiny specific details of imaginary lives to create a compelling human drama.”
