Emmy Abrahamson wanted to be a serious writer so that people would think that she was as wise as her literary-hero Gandalf. Yet she soon discovered that her writing was more like Merry and Pippin after smoking pipe-weed, and she now sees it as an honor to be called one of Sweden’s foremost feelgood and comedic writers

As a child, Emmy named all of her Barbie-dolls Aurora and created graphic stories that always involved Aurora getting kidnapped. From an early age she also became a prolific diary keeper and wanted to be a writer. But she never knew what to write about not realising that her own life having a Polish mother, growing up in the Soviet Union and marrying a man who lived in a bush, were pretty good starting points (as well as containing plenty of comedy).

Emmy is passionate about female-driven comedy-dramas, comedies and sitcoms, and is currently developing several original ideas for both film and television. At some point she might also develop a TV-series about a woman called Aurora who keeps getting kidnapped.
