About Hiltrud Baier
Hiltrud Baier’s German-Swedish family saga derives its authenticity from the fact that the author, a native of Southern Germany, later emigrated to Lapland. What Baier particularly loves about Northern Sweden is its spectacular landscape, and the fact that you can wander for hours without meeting another living soul. She’s not so fond of the sub-zero temperatures and the long periods of darkness in winter. But she has developed a good antidote: a crackling log fire, Samian music, and lots of hot tea.
The author lives with her husband in Jokkmokk in Swedish Lapland, and has two daughters.
