K.L. Slater

K.L. Slater

"I’ve learned that my readers don’t trust me one iota…readers are often suspicious from the very first page!" K. L. Slater is the author of psychological thrillers she describes as "tense with a sinister sense of building dread"—domestic noir stories that the reader or listener believes might happen to them, with a twist they don’t see coming.

While still holding down a full-time job, Slater embarked upon an English and creative writing honors degree at Nottingham Trent University (UK), receiving first class honors. Part of her dissertation became a story called The Bridge. After finishing her MA, Slater successfully launched herself as an author of multi-award-winning Young Adult novels, writing as Kim Slater. But she found that the character of Anna (the protagonist from The Bridge) kept calling her back to finish her story. And so Slater gave both the character and the story new life in her first crime novel Safe with Me, her first novel as K. L. Slater.

Now a full-time writer, Slater switches effortlessly between her two genres and audiences. While she can often be found reading multiple books at once, she says she only ever writes one at a time as she becomes so immersed in each world, "occasionally it dawns on me that I do spend so many hours of my day in worlds that don’t exist."

Slater (The Mistake, The Liar), it’s time to run, not walk, from the beautifully restored two-bedroom flat in prime Kensington Gardens that the owner is offering on a "pay what you can" basis...With dual narration from Tuppence Middleton, who stars in the upcoming Downton Abbey film, and John Chancer, this utterly devourable treat will keep you guessing until the last moment."
