Hello my name is Lotta
I’m a journalist and writer in London.
I’m originally from Finland and grew up in a small coastal town halfway between Helsinki and the arctic circle. I’m a Swedish speaking Finn, which means I’m part of language minority. We’re sort of like the Welsh or the French Canadians, but there are a lot fewer of us.
Before my life in London I was working as a TV reporter in Helsinki, dreaming about moving to the UK. In 2009 I finally packed my suitcase and left.
I work as a journalist, for Swedish daily newspaper Svenska Dagbladet and other media Finland and Sweden. You can find out more about work as a journalist and links to recent articles in my portfolio. I also write other bits and pieces of fiction and non-fiction in Swedish and in English. I’m a bit of a history and folklore geek and like to focus on those subjects in my writing.
My husband Gerry and I live in South East London.
