Hanna Jedvik is a journalist-turned-writer who loves to delve deeply into human relationships. She made her debut with Soon I’ll be Gone in 2010 and has since published four more books for teenagers and young adults, and the first part in a series of books for adults. Several of her books for young readers have been nominated and awarded, and she was named Värmland’s Author of the Year for the book Kurt Cobain Is No More.
Hanna Jedvik’s writing is characterized by poetic language, strong emotions and great empathy. With sensitivity and a light hand, she portrays her characters’ inner lives and their struggle with issues of identity, life choices, mental health and love. She calls the trilogy about young Alma “a queer Normal People” as Alma’s complicated but passionate relationship with her girlfriend Hedvig runs like a red thread through all three books.
In addition to her writing, Hanna Jedvik has worked as a journalist for over twenty years, including at Swedish Radio, Swedish Television and Göteborgs-Posten. She is also active as a cultural writer, critic and moderator, and as chairman of Författarcentrum Väst. Together with fellow author Emmy Abrahamson, she has written The Great Artist, the first part of a series about radio journalists Ann Ek and Esti Przybyszewski.
