I was born in Sweden and currently live in Crete, Greece with my husband and four children. I hold a MA in English Literature from the University of Dalarna, Sweden, and I wrote my thesis on Gender Conformity in Siri Hustvedt’s The Blindfold. I write the monthly column GAZE on women’s issues for The Wild Word, and I am an early reviewer for LibraryThing.
