My New Baby Has Arrived!

A new book is like a new baby.

My new book just arrived from the printers. I couldn’t wait for the mail, but went to pick it up directly from the publisher’s office. Holding a book you have written yourself for the first time is a bit like holding your newborn baby. It hasn’t been easy and you have waited so long. You are in awe of what you have created.

Kvinnokungen (The female king, or The woman king) is a novel about the Swedish queen Christina, who reigned in the seventeenth century. It’s a book about power, gender and politics. And love. I spent years researching and writing it. It will be released 25 May, and now I’m both fearing and looking forward to hearing what my readers will think about it.

Kristina skriver om Kristina

Har nyligen skrivit klart en vuxenroman om drottning Kristina som har tagit mig flera år att skriva. (Det känns som om jag gjorde lika mycket research till det här projektet som till min doktorsavhandling.) Hur som helst har jag nu skrivit kontrakt med W&W, och boken kommer ut nästa år. Är jätteglad!

Ny roman om 1600-talsdrottningen Kristina kommer ut 2017.
