Language and writing is my greatest passion. I love working creatively with the Swedish language, and my strenght there is above all my sense for choice of words and for the tone and rhythm of the language, to be used for capturing and engaging the reader. I have worked earlier as a freelancing book reviewer at a former Swedish Internet magazine on environmental and health issues, a magazine called Ekosens in Bandhagen, Stockholm, Sweden. I am also very skilful and knowledgeable within English, and am writing in English on a daily basis. Besides my public writing within professional and voluntary occasions, I am also doing a lot of private writing, in Swedish as well as in English, with blogs and political essays, though most of all within fictional prose and poetry. For the moment I am working with the final editing of my very first actual novel, written in Swedish.

I am very interested in political and societal issues, and very widely educated. I have a great interest and quite a lot of knowledge within quite a lot of fields, such as e.g. culture, history, literature, philosophy, religion, psychology, biology, ecology, and society in general. Well, in fact I am interested in mostly anything. And I am perhaps especially engaged within issues concerning animals, the environment, gender equality and LGBTQ.

I have a Bachelor's Degree within Environmental Science (including e.g. Environmental Ethics, Societal Planning, Sustainable Development and Environmental History) at Karlstad Univerisity, Sweden, with Media and Communication Science (including e.g. Informatics, Journalism and Textual and Imagery Analysis) as largest supporting subject. I have also studied Literature Science and English at university level.
