short story writer
I'm Nadia, a London-born writer happily living up to the coffee-sipping, cat-stroking stereotype in the beautiful Swedish countryside.
In Spring 2020, I embarked on a new adventure, relocating from my home of London to the breathtaking rural landscape of Northern Sweden. Prior to moving, I worked as a content creator for a vegan, natural beauty brand, bringing creative flair and grammatical precision to projects including everything from newsletters and award nomination entries to product packaging copy and video scripts.
Outside of the professional, I'm a keen writer; working mainly in the short story format, I have also been known to dabble in creative non-fiction and essays. I'm a passionate member of my writing community, and have been published in print and online. I also blog about my experience as a British immigrant living in Sweden, which you can read about here.
When I'm not writing, I enjoy lazing on the sofa with my cat and the latest short story collection or thriller I'm reading, slow-cooking a delicious vegan recipe in the kitchen, whiling away the hours in nature, and heading to my nearest thrift shops to pick up some second-hand fashion goodies.
