Jillian Halket is a disabled writer from Blackwood, Scotland. Her debut memoir Blade in the Shadow delves into her obsessive compulsive disorder and explores what it is like living with violent intrusive thoughts. She is an advocate for OCD awareness and recovery and was proud to take part in the first Activate Training for Movement for Change, a grassroots campaign by See Me Scotland. By telling her story she is determined to help in the fight against mental health stigma and discrimination. She can be found haunting the local bookshop or out in the Scottish countryside with her family and partner. She is a hippie at heart and enjoys anything to do with the occult and the written word. She is currently working on a fiction novel.
