About me

Emily Koch - pic by Barbara EvripidouI am an author and journalist living in Bristol, UK, and am represented by Peter Straus at Rogers, Coleridge and White.

My second novel Keep Him Close came out in March 2020. The Sunday Times called it ‘a tense drama’ and Literary Review said it was ‘A moving account of family relationships and…devastating criminality’. The Sun said it was ‘Twisty, emotional and addictive’. Waterstones said I am ‘One of the most exciting new crime writers of our day.’

My debut novel If I Die Before I Wake was shortlisted for the CWA Ian Fleming Steel Dagger award. It has also been longlisted for the Authors’ Club Best First Novel Award, was selected as a Waterstones Thriller of the Month, and was one of Waterstones’ top paperbacks of 2019.

One thought on “About me

  1. Only just discovered the book (If I die before I wake) and 2 chapters in, I love it…wish I had known about this before but then again, I didnt really take much notice of Stroke’s before my own !! 5 years post stroke, not working yet, well not paid work, but founded a charity to help others impacted by Stroke.
