Katarina Bivald grew up working part-time in a bookshop. Today she lives outside of Stockholm, Sweden, with her sister and as many bookshelves she can get by her. She'scurrently trying to persuade her sister that having a shelf for winter jackets and shoes is completely unneccessary. There should be enough space for a book shelf or two instead. Limited success so far. Apparantly, her sister is also stubbornly refusing to even discuss using the bath room to store books.

Katarina Bivald sometimes claims that she still hasn't decided whether she prefer books or people but, as we all know, people are a non-starter. Even if you do like them, they're better in books. Only possible problem: reading a great book and having noone to recommend it to.

I have to think of my own entertainment, and I like surprises myself."

I like to think that the same is true of setting. One of the best thing about reading is how it allows you to travel in your mind, and I like to think writing should be the same. Why write about something you know or the place where you already are?

So I chose Iowa precisely because I didn't know anything about it, except that it once had a library cat named Dewey Readmore Books. And after all, how much more do you need to know to love a place?(less)

May I introduce you to my Henny?

I have always said that the best thing about being a writer is that it’s a socially acceptable way of having imaginary friends as an adult. And when your book gets published, that’s when the real magic happen – it’s like having imaginary friends that other people can suddenly see and talk to and, well, hopefully,like.

Nothing pleases me more than when a readers likes someone in my story. It’s the

“For as long as she could remember, she had thought that autumn air went well with books, that the two both somehow belonged with blankets, comfortable armchairs, and big cups of coffee or tea.”
Katarina Bivald, The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend

“People were strange like that. They could be completely uninterested in you, but the moment you picked up a book, you were the one being rude.”
Katarina Bivald, The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend

“Can you smell it? The scent of new books. Unread adventures. Friends you haven't met yet, hours of magical escapism awaiting you.”
