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 at 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.
