and I started writing fiction almost ten years ago. The reason I began was that I was hit by depression, and I realized that the only thing that made me feel good was writing. At first, I just wanted to give it a try, see if I could. Then I was hooked.
Now I'm working on my twelfth book.
I live in a small town called Falköping in southwestern Sweden, with my husband, my two teenage sons, and my dog.
I am a trained teacher, have worked as one for ten years, and I am very fond of writing about adolescence.
I love watching teen TV series, and "Skam" is my absolute favorite.
The Teen Heart Series
I also kind of love my Teen Heart book series. With this, I have been able to delve into all the stormy emotions of adolescence.
It's all about love, friendship, puberty, and all those messy thoughts about what is happening in the body during these years. Or not happening, as for Kimmie in "Fourteen and In Love."
The books are traditionally published in Sweden by Ordalaget Publishing. And ever since they were released in Swedish, I have received numerous messages from young people who have identified with the characters.
That has made me decide to translate the books into English and publish them as an indie author.
Some might say I'm mad doing this. Well, I might be. We'll see.
The first two books in the series will be available in English in 2024, so keep an eye out for this series!
