Suspense and Romance that tickles all our senses and makes us feel good
Christoffer Holst (born 1990) writes books about love. Sometimes they are feel-good novels and sometimes they are horror novels. Although their common denominator is always a focus on love and relationships and his writing style is quick and cinematic. There is also a theme of good wine and food in every book.
Christoffer started writing when he was a teenager and was strongly influenced by film and TV. At the age of thirteen his two biggest sources of inspiration were Alfred Hitchcock and Sex and the city (paradoxically...).
In 2015 he wrote his debut novel "My Heart Will Go On" - a story about two guys in Stockholm who fall in love with each other. The novel came in second place in a Harlequin competition and was picked up by the publishers at Bokfabriken. "My Heart Will Go On" was praised with very nice comments and reviews from its readers and book bloggers. The following year Christoffer's second novel was released: ”Mindfulness for losers” - a feel-good novel about Hollywood stars, reality shows and about not fitting in.
Since Christoffer is also a big fan of horror (as mentioned: Alfred Hitchcock...) he wanted to try something different and in summer 2017 his first novel for Young Adults will be released "Waiting for the Night to Arrive" a ghost story about forbidden love, abandoned houses and secrets.
In recent years Christoffer has moved his authorship into a new phase and has combined his passion for feel-good and suspense in his new project: The Cilla Storm Series. A suspenseful and charming crime series, in the style of Nora Roberts and Agatha Christie, about a curious gossip columnist who decides to start over in life and moves to the archipelago in Stockholm. Her new life contains a lot more bloody scenarios than she could have ever imagined... the first two books in the series "Sweet Red Summer Dreams" and "Blue Blue Waves of Autumn" has both been sold to several countries and in winter 2020 the third book will be released.
When Christoffer isn't writing books he enjoys drinking cold, oak barrel stored, Chardonnay, watching crappy TV, baking cheesecake, and fantasizing about new stories. He lives on Södermalm in Stockholm with his boyfriend Johan.
