Liv Johannesson


Liv grew up outside of Gothenburg, Sweden. She started writing poetry and short-stories as a teenager, initially as something to do when she was bored. In her early twenties she fell in love with Jane Austen’s writing. The idea of being a writer was born when she learnt that Austen wrote to amuse family and friends before she became a published author.
Being a restless soul, Liv moved to the US for a few years to study for a Bachelor’s degree in Media and Communications. This also gave her opportunity to take classes in poetry writing, creative writing and literature.
Liv now lives in London where she continues to explore writing while working professionally as an architectural lighting designer. She is part of two writer’s groups: Greenwich Writers and Global Fusion Music and Arts, where she also does public readings of her poetry.
To amuse family, friends and anyone else who cares to read her stories, is still Liv’s main goal when writing and publishing.
Let Me Tell You A Story While You Sleep is her first self-published book.

Smashwords Interview

What do you read for pleasure?
I read pretty much anything but I prefer fictional life-stories. As TV and film goes, I think most of what I read would slot in under drama. One of the greatest things about reading is the possibility of experiencing someone else's life, perhaps in a place that I have never visited.
When did you first start writing?
I started writing when I was 15-16 years old. At the time it was mostly poetry, teenage angst. It was an outlet for the often confusing experiences you have at that age.
Eventually I started writing short-stories and now I write pretty much anything. It depends on the story I want to tell.
