About me

Catrin Russell is an Epic Romantic Fantasy author from northern Sweden. Her books are all written in English and are mainly part of the Epic/High and Romantic Fantasy genres. However, she does use influences from Dark Fantasy as well.

Growing up outside a small town, basically in the middle of nowhere, Catrin eventually moved to Stockholm, where she studied computer game development and design. Meeting her soon-to-become husband online, she lived outside of London for the best parts of a year, before finally settling down in Piteå, back in Sweden. Since then, two children and two dogs have joined the family.

With a background in design and holding a degree as a registered nurse, she writes novels in medieval settings, with plenty of action and romance. She often brings moral struggles, or highlights issues in society, into her writing. Another subject that is often highlighted is mental health.

Catrin also creates concept art, bringing her characters to life on the screen, and her own cover designs, much of which can be seen on her social media pages!


At the age of 30, she published her first book, which is now available for purchase here. All works, published and currently planned, can be found here
