Katarina Genar has lived in Germany, France and now lives in Sweden with her family. When she is not writing, she works as a speech therapist with children's language development.
In 2010 Katarina Genar's first novel for children was published, A Secret Friend. And since then she has published several critically acclaimed books that are loved by the young readers.
When writing Katarina Genar is often inspired by what she experiences, sees or hears: a melancholy piano tune, a few swings on a deserted playground or a hand painted china cup with blue flowers that suddenly put her imagination in motion. She enjoys stories with several layers, and is fascinated by that which is enigmatic and somewhat mysterious.
