Satu Rämö (b. 1980) moved to Iceland twenty years ago as an economics exchange student, but instead of macroeconomics she ended up studying Icelandic culture, literature and mythology before forging a successful career as a blogger, writer, coach and mentor. Satu has published numerous bestselling, prizewinning non-fiction titles in her native Finland, ranging from travel guides to Iceland, to inspirational memoirs and a forthcoming Icelandic knitting book. HILDUR is her fiction debut and she is planning two further standalones featuring Hildur Rúnarsdóttir. Book 2, RÓSA & BJÖRK will be published in spring 2023, followed by Book 3 in winter 2023. Satu lives with her Icelandic husband and two children in the small town of Ísafjörður in northwest Iceland.
