Sagt om ”Broder själ, syster flamma”/Comments about ”Brother soul, sister flame”
"It feels very credible in its description of how different values and beliefs mercilessly collide and how xenophobia and ignorance flourishes."
"It's a skilfully composed novel that deserves praise."
"... the violent opening doesn't prevent the build-up towards an even more intense end."
Åsa Böker (author of "Nordland"):
"It's a fantasy – but it's so much more! A reality-fantasy! A brutal depiction of real life, set in a fantasy world. [...] I think it's a magnificent work of literature."
"This is a well processed novel, written with commitment."
Amanda Franzén, lecteur
"One of the best books I've read in a long time. And definitely the best looking."

An e-mail from the publisher has increased my hope substantially! It appears they will publish all four stories in one ”volume” (whatever is it called when it’s an ebook?). Bloody marvelous! The editor will now read the stories again and … Läs mer
The first indications from Epok Förlag are positive. More feed-back will come, but as it looks now, at least one of my four short-stories will be published this autumn. I’m tremendously excited, especially about the covers, since it’s always interesting to see … Läs mer
Feel-good vs feel-bad. What’s the deal? Why write stories that make you feel bad, when you can tell tales with happy endings and fulfilled dreams? To me there is a simple answer. If the world was a happy place where … Läs mer
Me and Miss P spend the day at Kattcon gaming convention in Katrineholm, Sweden. We’re selling my novel and a couple of tasty bites in the shape of two short-stories. Sales so far? Meager. Four short-stories and one novel. The … Läs mer
