Forbidden love between two intended kings and a dark secret that can tear them apart …
My name is Anna Jansdotter and I am the writer of the Swedish norm-breaking and romantic fantasy series Stjärnskådartrilogin/the Stargazer trilogy. The story revolves around the two intended kings Lôvah and Melinde, whose lives are woven together by fate. Their love is beautiful and true, but will it save the world they live in?
So, why lgbt fantasy? For me it came quite naturally because I am a lgbt person myself and I love fantasy. So, I thought why not combine these two? Since I never found what I was looking for in Swedish bookstores, I decided to write a trilogy about true love between two elven princes from different cultures myself. You know that kind of love who overcomes all? Even when everything seems hopeless and dark? That kind of romance. There must be a HEA or else I am out, ha ha. Or…?
But it is not just the romance part that is important to me. I also wanted to include neurodiverse characters because my traits have never been represented in a fantasy or in any other book I have read so far. I think it is important to know that we want to be represented in fiction too.
The first part, Stjärnbärarens önskan/the Starkeeper’s wish, is currently being presented to Swedish publishers by my literary agent, but we are also looking for publishers overseas. Alongside I am writing on the second part of the Stargazer trilogy.
