Turning Real Life Into Nordic Mysteries

Before she became a novelist, Helena Halme played a small, but important, part in Cold War history.

My podcast guest is Helena Halme, a writer of romantic Nordic mysteries. She lives in the United Kingdom, but is originally from Finland. Before she became a novelist, Helena played a small, but important, part in Cold War history as a translator for the BBC.

In addition to her Nordic mysteries, Helena writes nonfiction on how to turn your life into fiction and how to write in a language that’s not your own.

We talk about Helena’s adventures at the BBC, her recent work, and her role as ALLi’s Nordic ambassador. Oh, and we’ll also learn her favorite ABBA song.
