For the Love of Writing
Writing is like chiseling, sculpting, and polishing until you find the true shape of the story
I write contemporary drama for adults who want lighthearted escape as well as emotional connection. I write everyday stories to inspire us to overcome our own obstacles and become the best version of ourselves
I grew up in Sweden but braved the creepy crawlies of OZ in early 80’s to visit my sister. And that’s when I met this surfer dude who was rather keen on me. To cut a long and winding and pretty cool story short. Here I am decades later, living on the north coast of Australia with that same guy—who still surfs.
Our three children are adults and look after themselves. We get to play house all by ourselves now which means very little housework and lots of writing for me. When I don’t write I think about writing, read about writing, or listen to podcasts about writing. I read fiction too of course and watch films. I’m passionate about anything story.
I’m editing my second novel—working title ‘Adeline Treading Water’ and plan to see it published in 2022. I’m also writing my third novel—working title ‘The Fall & Rise of Jasper Scragg. And what about my first one you wonder. It’s been shelved—for good.
Are you a writer, reader, both?
Are you drawn to stories about every day people? Are you as interested in the internal need of the protagonist as much as their external want, character development as much as plot? Do you fancy a bit of romance? What about sex scenes? After all, it’s a natural part of life. Do you like a twist? True, who doesn’t! And why do you read? Is it an escape from a world gone nuts, family in general, or is it a procrastination device? Do you believe stories connects us to each other, to ourselves and what it means to be human? If you answer yes, to any or all of these I think we shall get along just fine.
