2019-04-05: Today I'm releasing my Swedish solo-album Genom undergången (which translates to either "Through the underpass" or "Through the end/doom/apocalypse". Ten fictional songs about misery that I wrote and recorded (mostly) two years ago. Avaliable on Spotify, iTunes, Bandcamp och i andra kanaler!

I'm also working on the series of novels that started with "Alla bär en skugga". Next one is out in print due december 2019.


I've written seven novels in Swedish. Two published in print by Oddbooks. All sold out at the moment but will be re-issued again starting next year. My new novel is due out in december 2019.

(More info about the books avaliable in Swedish at the moment I'm afraid, but more is coming soon.)

I was born and grew up in the wilderness of Jämtland in northern Sweden in the 20th century. I decided to become an author when I was eleven. I studied Graphic Design and Communication in university. For a while I was co-owner of a company producing commersials and film. At the moment I'm employed as a media producer while continuing work as an author.
