Elena Mady

Elena Mady writes her books on a quaint little island in the Baltic Sea, and her love for the exquisite Finnish nature is omnipresent in her texts. A Stanford educated citizen of the world, Mady is also an illustrator and a successful singer songwriter with radio hits in Finland and Scandinavia. Her new series, the Body Jumper is based a song she wrote a few years back that kept haunting her, just begging to be written into a book. The dash of the surreal in her writing serves
as a gateway to heightened emotional truth, to keeping it real and relatable. Her world is quirky and warm. Wickedness exists, but Mady faces it head on and finds ways to survive it.
