About me

My name is Désirée Nordlund.
I've been writing for as long as I can remember.

I wrote my first "novel" (a stunning thirty-six pages) when I was about twelve. It was a serious story dealing about what happens after we die. My mother thought it would be something for a stage and arranged for me to meet directors to give me the opportunity to develop my story. I was convinced I was a writing genius.

My next project was a huge novel about a queen and her lady-in-waiting. Or rather two novels: one story from the queen's point of view and one from her lady-in-waiting. A huge project never finished.

I started to write moviescripts in my twenties. I had a story I tried to write as a novel but couldn't get it work. Then I realized that what I had in my head was a movie.

Still convinced I was a writing genius I had a hard time accepting the negative critique I got. It took me years to realize that I did have something to learn. Then, slowly, my writing became worth reading.
