Me, myself and I

My name is Helena and I am 27 years old (although I barely look 17...). Since I learned to read at the age of about 6, I have devoured books (save a few years of university studies which totally killed my reading buzz). I'm kind of new to the whole YA scene but I appreciate it more every day that goes by, although I'm older than the intended target audience.

I was born and raised in Sweden, where I still live together with my husband. We just bought a big old countryside school that we're rebuilding into a house so a lot of my time is now spent renovating instead of reading.

I am a language teacher (English and German) and I am currently teaching 13- to 18-year-olds German. Fun, but challenging!
