I was born 1982 in Akureyri, the unofficial capital of north Iceland.
After spending a part of my childhood in Norway and later Reykjavik I now live in good old Akureyri. Between university, writing and sleeping I go the gym and the swimming pool.
Just about eccentric enough to be a writer, I started experimenting with writing after graduating high school in 2004. My first fantasy novel, Lord of the Blind, debuted in Iceland in 2011 and I followed with one more a year for the next four years, before moving on to the English-language market. The Call was released in February 2015, and I've been going ever since.
