Ehring, Anna

Anna Ehring has written a moving, heartbreaking series (with an absurd humour that reminds one of Loranga) about a child who has lost his mother and won a friend. The Dragonheart series is Anna Ehring’s debut as an author of books for children and young adults. In all there are four titles about Nisse and Anna writes other titles too.

Anna Ehring lives with her husband and three children in Stockholm. She has worked earlier with acting. After studying at a writers’ school, she has written playscripts, and also worked as a carer. The first title in the Dragonheart series was nominated to the August Prize in 2010 and Anna Ehring has received the Nils Holgersson plaquette, the prestigious prize awarded by the Swedish Library Association, in 2012 for the series.
