Editors at Bokförlaget Forum

Responsible publisher of Swedish fiction as well as acquirer of American and French fiction

Books and languages have been a big and important part of my life ever since I was a child, and after finishing my studies in literature, English, French and communication, the choice of profession was obvious.

My publishing career stated at the publishing house Trevi, where I worked in public relations, but since 1997 I have been at Forum – first as an editor, and since 2000 as a publisher. It has truly been a pleasure to be a part of building Forum’s Swedish list, a time consuming and important project which has resulted in us publishing some of Sweden’s most famous and popular authors.

As a publisher, I am always on the lookout for talented writers in different genres, new voices that can move, entertain and bring new thoughts to life. I have the privilege of working with crime authors such as Camilla Läckberg, Viveca Sten, Mons Kallentoft and Ninni Schulman, novelists such as Anna Fredriksson, Katarina Bivald and Simona Ahrnstedt, and new rising starts like Annika Paldanius, Anna Platt and Lina Bengtsdotter. My American list includes amazing authors like Nobel prize winner Toni Morrison, Elizabeth Strout and Jesmyn Ward.

I truly love my job and the authorships I work with. It’s a blessing to be the author’s sounding board and creative collaboration partner and be a part of all the stages of a book – from acquisition to script editing and marketing. Nothing is as fun as getting to spread my enthusiasm for the books we publish!
