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 debut novel If I Die Before I Wake, published by Harvill Secker, an imprint of Penguin Random House, is a top 20 bestseller and was shortlisted for the CWA Ian Fleming Steel Dagger award.

“This is a debut to be reckoned with.” (Barry Forshaw, Guardian)

“The author conveys a real sense of the true horror of being locked inside a body that won’t move with a brain that still works. And she persuades us to stay with the story to its strangely exhilarating conclusion.” (Christina Appleyard, Daily Mail)

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.
