Heleen Kist

In my day job as independent strategy consultant, I craft creative and insightful stories of growth and transformation for my clients. So one day, I thought I’d try another kind of fiction.

Born in the Netherlands, I lived in multiple countries as a diplomat-child, during my early career at Procter & Gamble, while studying for my masters at Stanford University, and as a McKinsey consultant. Then I met a Scotsman. And you know what they say about them.

I kept him, and we now live in Glasgow with our two children—who inspired the book’s fight scene.

I speak four and a half languages, but readers will be pleased to know English is now my best.
