Cecilia wrote her first manuscript 18 years old for a writing contest. She didn’t win, but this was the starting point of a lifetime of writing. She went on with studies at the university and has worked at both newspapers as well as publishing houses. In the 1990s Cecilia decided to become a police officer and worked in the force for many years. When she decided to leave the police force she was superintendent in Malmö.
During a course in journalism she was inspired to write a book and four weeks late White Lilac was finished. Cecilia’s style is gripping, intense and engaging. It holds you from the first until the last word.
