Frida Skybäck is passionate about two things; great love stories and women’s history. As a teacher of language and humanities, Frida realized how much of our common history is told through a male perspective. Being the mother of two daughters, she set as a goal to create complex and interesting female characters and give them a place in history.

As part of her process, Frida spends a great deal of time doing research. Her stories are often inspired by letters and diaries found in the many archives of her hometown Lund and they give a voice to women of previous generations.

Following in the footsteps of Kate Morton, Frida’s books are effortlessly written and invite you into a colourful historical setting. She has been described as a modern-day Jane Austen and her writing is a perfect mix of gripping romantic drama, moral dilemmas, class antagonism, enduring love and dark family secrets.

Frida also produces and stars in the popular and award-winning podcast “Författarpodden” together with fellow author Agnes Hellström, in which they talk about writing and authorship.
