After a particularly difficult year, Majken (pronounced “My-ken”) Selinder Nilsson began writing as a way to avoid the room with the rubber wallpaper and the jacket with all of the buckles, finding during the process that she really enjoyed and had a knack for it. Though becoming an author was never in her plans, it was not surprising, as Ms. Selinder Nilsson has always had a vividly active imagination, having not only one but two imaginary friends as a child. Even as an adult, her characters come to life in her head and their personal stories often flow out faster than she can type. In just three years, she had written three novels and had received publishing contracts for two of them. Her books are available for sale in print, ebook, and audiobook editions with a variety of retailers, from Amazon.com to Walmart.com, and even through vendors abroad.
A native Nevadan from a small town, who also spent some time living in her ancestral home of Sweden, Ms. Selinder Nilsson is now a transplanted Southerner, where she lives with her very understanding family, who accepts that she stays up way too late writing, and all of whom are now used to calling her name several times to get her attention whenever she is in front of her computer. They are also accustomed to her bringing her laptop with her wherever they go in case there is a free moment to create, and have even stopped teasing her about her ever-changing facial expressions while she writes.
