I am a middle-aged chap with a lovely family in Stockholm, Sweden. I earn my living as a tech writer and use some of my spare time to create role-playing games and fantastic stories.
I fell in love with science fiction at the age of eight, when my father gave me Jules Verne’s 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea with the encouraging words: “I liked this story when I was a kid.” A few years later, I entered JRR Tolkien’s Middle-earth thanks to the school library*. Still today, my mind often walks in the forest of Lothlórien or treks across the wasteland of Syrtis.
I have been writing role-playing games since the late 1970s. In the mid-1980s, I master-minded the development of Sweden’s two best-selling RPG brands: Drakar och Demoner and Mutant. The most incredible job I have ever had. And in the 1990s, I started writing fantasy and science fiction novels. My current favourite approach is dieselpunk and similar retro-tech styles.
At the turn of the millennium, the arrival of our children made life less bohemian — welcome to the middle class, so to speak. But I just keep on writing, because it is so fun.
