I'm Heleen and I love writing novels. Thankfully, people tend to like reading them too.
I'm Dutch and I live in Glasgow with Scottish husband and our two teens.
My debut crime novel IN SERVITUDE came out in 2018. I'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.
My latest WHAT I HID FROM YOU is about a dentist who succumbs to an addition to Valium and stumbles into the hands of Glasgow drug dealers.
Have a look around and stay in touch through Twitter, Facebook or my newsletter.
