About KL Slater
After years of trying to get published and never getting further than the slush pile, I went back to university at the age of 40 where I studied for an English & Creative Writing degree followed by an MA in Creative Writing. Although I also worked full-time during the five years I studied at university, the courses gave me the time and space to try different writing and increased my confidence and belief in my writing. Before I graduated from my MA, I had secured representation with my agent, Clare Wallace, at the Darley Anderson Literacy, TV and Film Agency and had my first book deal. My first adult psychological thriller for Bookouture is called ‘Safe with Me’ and it actually started life as my dissertation on my English & Creative Writing degree. The creepy voice of Anna came to me strong and insistent . . . she wanted to be written, she wouldn’t go away. I live in Nottingham with my husband, Mac. Between us we have three grown-up kids; my daughter, Francesca and Mac’s sons Nathan and Jake. I also write multi-award winning YA fiction under the name Kim Slater. From author's website
This was as tense a thriller as you can get. Locked-in syndrome following a stroke and you know that the outside world believes you to be in a vegetative state and that it is only a matter of time before there is a medical decision made to stop you from breathing. Add to the mix that even if you could reach the world outside your body, the world is not a safe place for you anymore. But whoa... that's not even the half of it! I could not put this book down. I have not read K L Slater's debut novel Safe With Me and immediately went to Amazon to buy it after reading this one, only to find I have already purchased it last November sitting there at the back of my Kindle unread and forgotten, but not for much longer!
