Genre


Linda Olsson lives in Auckland, New Zealand. Her debut 'Let me sing you gentle songs' was published in September 2005 in New Zealand. Since then the rights for it have been sold to many countries. It has now been published in the US and Canada under the title 'Astrid and Veronika' as well as in her country of birth, Sweden (Låt mig sjunga dig milda sånger).

Linda Olsson isn't a Goodreads Author (yet), but she does have a blog, so here are some recent posts imported from her feed.

I was asked to contribute a short story to National Radio’s Short Story Club. The review is here:


Short Story Club


The story stayed up on their page for a week, but is no longer available.


But here it is:


I shall be her witness


It felt so good to return to short story writing.

“Take risks! That is really what life is about. We must pursue our own happiness. Nobody has ever lived our lives; ther are no guidelines. Trust your instincts. Accept nothing but the best. But then also look for it carefully. Don't allow it to slip between your fingers. Sometimes, good things come to us in a such a quiet fashion. And nothing comes complete. It is what we make of whatever we encounter that determines the outcome. What we choose to see, what we choose to save. And what we choose to remember. Never foget that all the love in your life is there, inside you, always.”
Linda Olsson, Astrid and Veronika

“But once you accept the fact that you have always been alone, and will always be, then your perspective can begin to change. You can become aware of the small kindnesses, the little comforts. Be grateful for them. ”
Linda Olsson, Astrid and Veronika

“I think that if we just listen to ourselves we know what it is we have to do . . . . And I have come o think that however much it hurts, however hard it is, we have to listen. We have to live our lives.”
Linda Olsson, Astrid and Veronika
