I was born in Malmö, Sweden’s third largest city and cultural hub where I enjoyed an idyllic childhood, surrounded by beaches, parks and commons. My home was filled with music and literature and I started to write short stories, which I entered into competitions when I was eight years old.
I moved to London in the mid-Nineties and it has now been my home for more than twenty years. I regularly spend part of the year in Malmö surrounded by the beautiful landscape and tranquility that inspires my writing.
My debut novel, Because of You, was published in August 2016. The novel is inspired by my own visits to London during the Eighties. The eclectic club scene was something that I was too young to appreciate fully at the time but it is emblematic of an exciting era that is now gone forever. Looking back, it was such fun and inspired me to relocate to London many years later.
My second novel, We Never Said Goodbye, was published in April 2017 and my third, His Guilty Secret, is due out in November. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed writing it.
With much love, Hélene
