About Lene Fogelberg

Growing up in a small town on the Swedish west coast, Lene Fogelberg developed a love of poetry and reading, nurtured by the rural surroundings of her childhood. She went on to study languages and creative writing at the University of Gothenburg and the Stockholm Academy of Writing. Always curious, Fogelberg has embraced opportunities to study and live abroad, in France, Germany, the USA, Indonesia and Malaysia. After eight years in Southeast Asia, she moved back to Sweden with her family.

An award-winning poet in Sweden, Fogelberg has always felt drawn to writing in English and switched language when writing the memoir Beautiful Affliction, a Wall Street Journal bestseller, a national gold medalist in the 2016 Independent Publisher Book Awards, and a finalist in the 2015 USA Best Book Awards and the 2016 International Book Awards. Beautiful Affliction is released as audiobook by Tantor Media, narrated by Henrietta Meire, and translated into German and published by Bastei Lübbe with the title Mein Glück kann jeden Tag zerbrechen.

Her debut YA novel The Lightning Tree was released March 29, 2022. The second installment of The NI Revolution Trilogy, The Oaken Queen, will be released in the spring of 2023.

Fogelberg’s writing has been featured in The Huffington PostWriter’s Digest, First For Women, Women’s World, We Heart Writing, She Writes, and Women Writers, Women’s Books.
