Siri was born in 1971, under the northern lights of Norway, with a severely overactive imagination. It survived countless attacks from the outside world, rendering her an expert escapist, frolicking in a wide range of media: Design, web, comics, illustration, animation and text. Anything for a good story. In 2002 she won a national comic contest with "Anticlimax", the comic strip that made her "Newcomer of the year" in the Norwegian Sproing Awards. Siri has worked as an Art Director for many years, but she is now writing full time, devoted to her fantastical worlds.

A year to remember!

Be warned: This newsletter was recently sent to all my publishers, so naturally, it’s bragging as f*ck, because they need to see that all their hard work is paying off. They did an amazing job, but so did all of my readers. Thank you! Truly! I can’t begin to say h... Read more of this blog post »

"Trilogie Havraní kruhy patří mezi nemnoho sérií, kde s postupujícími díly kvalita neupadá, ba právě naopak. K prvnímu dílu jsme měla vcelku dost výhrad a nejspíš jsem nebyla jediná, neboť Siri Petersen zvládla téměř všechna místa, kde jsem krčila..." Read more of this review »

“Nyhetene forgifter meg, og jeg merker jeg er sjeleglad for at det kommer en generasjon som er oppfostret på såkalt virkelighetsflukt. For de kommer til å redde ræva til oss alle. De vil ikke vippes av pinnen når problemet blir for stort. De har lest nok dystopier til å vite at regimer kan lyve. Nok fantasy til å vite at enkeltmennesker kan vinne over umulige odds. Nok sci-fi til å vite at framskritt også kan være et skritt tilbake. Og de vet at alle har lik verdi, uansett rase, legning eller religion. Og neste gang noen spør meg hvorfor fantasy er så populært skal jeg svare at det ikke spiller noen rolle, vi skal bare være glad for at det er det. Det er sånne som kommer til å overleve zombieapokalypsen, for å si det sånn.”
Siri Pettersen

“Det var like før daggry, men fremdeles mørkt ute. En flik av himmelen var synlig mellom klippene, langt over henne. Millioner av stjerner lå som støv. Flere stjerner enn Umpiri, mennesker, og ætlinger til sammen. Verden var så uendelig mye større enn skapningene den rommet.”
Siri Pettersen, Evna

“Jag vet att förändring kostar. Saker händer. Oförutsedda saker. Folk är folk, vad de än är för sort, och rädsla finns överallt.”
Siri Pettersen, Evna

“If you make art, people will talk about it. Some of the things they say will be nice, some won’t. You’ll already have made that art, and when they’re talking about the last thing you did, you should already be making the next thing.


If bad reviews (of whatever kind) upset you, just don’t read them. It’s not like you’ve signed an agreement with the person buying the book to exchange your book for their opinion.

Do whatever you have to do to keep making art. I know people who love bad reviews, because it means they’ve made something happen and made people talk; I know people who have never read any of their reviews. It’s their call. You get on with making art.”
Neil Gaiman

“Solving the following riddle will reveal the awful secret behind the universe, assuming you do not go utterly mad in the attempt. If you already happen to know the awful secret behind the universe, feel free to skip ahead.”
David Wong, John Dies at the End

Line Hei! Vil bare takke deg for en fantastisk leseropplevelse! Odinsbarn var en forfriskende overraskelse, og jeg klarte ikke å legge boka fra meg. Til min store glede oppdaget jeg at oppfølgeren er rett rundt hjørnet. Ser frem til mer tid med Hirka og Rime. Lykke til med lansering! :)
