Born in the Northern part of Finland, known as Lapland, she embraced the arctic temperatures and became an avid musher and highly skilled markswoman—a necessary skill when hunting for food. She studied history at the University of Helsinki and screenwriting at Aalto University’s Department of Film, Television, and Scenography.
She wrote professional texts throughout her career but decided to learn the delicate art of writing fiction later on. She mastered the craft in different writer’s workshops—always keen to become a better writer.
Her work ranges from dystopian to historical and stays mostly within the thriller genre. Arctic nature is a recurring theme in her writing.
As a dedicated fan of action-packed novels, she loves Tom Clancy and Robert Ludlum, but also the subtle way of building suspense used by the ultimate grandmaster of spy novels—John LeCarre. Her favorite writer will always be George Orwell with his bone-chilling 1984: an evergreen classic of dystopian literature.
