In her own words she is “drawn to silliness” and “attempts to deal with anxiety-inducing subjects with a light touch, although right now, it feels difficult to be light and silly about anything at all”.

Currently, she’s working on her third book, ‘Den naturliga komedin / The Natural Comedy’, which is about deforestation, fungi, and more… all with a touch of La Divina Commedia.
