About this author

Before finding domestic bliss in suburbia, ST Bende lived in Manhattan Beach (became overly fond of Peet’s Coffee) and Europe… where she became overly fond of the musical Cats. Her love of Scandinavian culture and a very patient Norwegian teacher inspired the ELSKER series. She hopes her characters make you smile and that one day pastries will be considered a health food.

The Aere Saga (working title) is my 2015 project. It spins from the Elsker world by introducing us to Gunnar's brother Henrik, and his motley Norse crew. I don't have a publication date yet, but I'm drafting the second of the three planned Aere novels... and I can't wait for y'all to read them! (less)

Hi Eevee23 -
I'm giving Ull and Kristia a little break from me while I work on writing The Aere Saga. The new series focuses on Gunnar's brother Henrik Andersson and his own Norse crew, though there might just be cameos from some of the Elsker gang. ;) I'm really excited to share these stories with you - the first book comes out in December 2015!! http://www.stbende.com/#!aeresaga/czvl

Let's talk about Ull, shall we? There's a whole lotta good stuff in the Prose Edda (kind of sort of the Viking Bible) and the Marvel folklore about Thor, God of Thunder, Prince of Asgard, All Around Great Guy. But there's barely anything out there about his cutie-pie stepson. Whaddya say we get a little better acquainted with the Norse God of Winter?? According to the Prose Edda, Ull is the s...
