Book_cover_3

My upcoming book has the key features of a post-apocalyptic thriller: battle, spies, and the desperate alliance of two women from the opposite sides of the war. This is Mad Max- Fury Road in the blood-thirsty, arctic wasteland. The setting is frozen Europe, twenty-five years after the nuclear holocaust. The Russian Federation and The European Union fight each other with nail and teeth.

My heroine is a POW in a post-apocalyptic war. She escapes prison and avoids being blackmailed into becoming a double agent. She roams the northern outback and saves a young enemy woman who will lead her to grave danger- and save her ass. The story has a spiritual heart, and where the rifle clicks on empty, ancient gods and animal spirits rise to save the day.

Give Your Characters Hell- A Crash-course in World Building

The world of my first book is dystopian, as some of you might know. In Sci-Fi and post-apocalyptic literature, world-building must start from page one. The same goes with historical fiction, but I continue with the beginning of George Orwell’s 1984: “It was a bright cold day in April, and the clocks were striking thirteen. … Continue reading Give Your Characters Hell- A Crash-course in World Building
