About me

Hello and welcome to my blog! I hope you are all enjoying it. I have created this blog for you, other soul-searching, curious, people-interested, creative, sometimes confused, and unconventional persons out there. My name is Sara, and I am a writer and a psychologist. Apart from science papers, I write fiction, and am half way through my first ever novel. I try to write a poem here and there, and I recently won my first local poetry competition.

Are you still reading? Fantastic! Here is my story, but put very briefly I promise. I have studied human behavior intensely all my life (informally and formally). It started at birth, I believe, and I started writing about it as soon as I learned how to write well enough to keep a journal, at age 7 or so. At about age 20, and 25 journals later filled with short stories, confusions part of growing up, daily pains and pleasures, ambitions, and a few poems. I was indeed born and raised in Sweden. Under a sun that hardly sets in the summer. Under the stars that were brightly shining and reflecting light by the thick snow at 5 pm in the winter. And by the breeze of a lake, (almost) clean enough to drink from, the place I learned to swim, and the place I made most of my treasured childhood memories. I am also, therefore, a soul very fond of nature and wildlife.  

Fast forward a bit, therefore, and another 10 or so journals later, I applied to University in London rather last minute, in learnedAugust, was accepted and moved a couple of weeks later. I lived and worked in fantastically fascinating, inspirational, sweet, but can be frustrating, London for 15 years before moving back to Sweden with three kids and a husband in 2017. I sing pretty well, I play guitar badly, and I want to learn to play the piano better. I listen to music all the time, and I watch a lot of comedy, and films (Woody Allen and Ingmar Bergman are of course existential favorites). Sometimes I make stuff, on my sawing machine or with my kids. I love visiting the opera, writing events and groups, and art galleries whenever I get a chance (Turner, Vermeer, and Rothko are my all-time favorite painters). I love walking, far and beyond, and I love swimming, especially in the lake or the ocean.

I look forward to hearing from you.
