About the Author
Kelli Owen was a reviewer and editor of some of the biggest names in the genre for over ten years. She has been to countless conventions, participated on dozens of panels, and spoken at CIA headquarters in Langley regarding her writing. And they still don't know what genre to put her in...
She's not a horror writer in the traditional sense. Rather than throwing blood at the page, she prefers to let it soak in slowly. Creepy, moody, atmospheric, and quiet are her favorite ways of getting under your skin. And she will. With a smile.

HORROR FICTION REVIEW: FORGOTTEN BY KELLI OWEN
As a fan of Kelli Owen, I look forward to seeing her every summer and picking up her most recent offering, this year her latest book is entitled Forgotten. And trust me when I tell you that this book is anything but easily forgotten.
We open with Annalise Timmins, the woman found battered and bleeding in the rest stop supply closet. She has no idea who she is or how she got there. She doesn't recall much of anything up to that moment. Her memory isn't the only missing piece from her life.
With the "help" of local authorities, neighbours and friends, doctors and a man who swears to be her husband, Anna finds out that the scariest stranger is the one you can become in an instant. Forgotten is a novella that I can not say much about, the brilliance of the premise is one that relies on one going in with the least amount of information. It is a tragic and sad but also an angering exercise in bad behaviour and not-so-great ideas.
The writing is sharp, and you get a feel for these characters. Forgotten is a tense and uncomfortable read. But it is also a damn fine one.
An expertly done thriller/character study that packs a lot of depth into its hundred pages, and an ending that will make your jaw drop. Loved this one.
Annalise is found at a roadside reststop without her baby and the last five years of her life. Before you tell me that you've read this before let me say oh, no you didn't! Kelli Owen takes screaming left turns from the right turn only lane like a score of cops is on her tail.
I love psychological thrillers, especially ones where the best is saved for the last page. Do yourself a favor a buy and read this excellent novella today.
