I couldn’t be happier. One and a half year ago my favourite publisher phoned, and said: “We want you. You’re going to work with us.” Since then – well, I am a writer and I write. Books for children.
Sure, I’m not Astrid Lindgren, and I’ve never meant to be. But somehow I write – fiction and especially non-fiction because that’s what we do most of all – non-fiction books for kids.
It’s not easy.
Actually, it’s the most difficult job I’ve ever had.
That’s why my head is like a heavy ball from time to time. And sometimes I even think: Am I able to do that job without a break? Now I feel I really need to change something in my life. Well, we’ll see.
In the meantime, let’s celebrate! That one dream came true. <3
