The mixed feeling of adrenalin, fear and happiness – I fell completely in love
Erika Vallin does a lot of things: she’s a an author, a copywriter for H&M and a former writer for magazines such as Swedish Elle. Her fantasy trilogy, The Secret Mirrors (“Speglarnas hemlighet”) is popular in stores this year – a great Christmas gift to anyone with big imagination. Make it last asks her about a highly valued piece of hers – an eternal flame.
”Last spring I started up a new book project, totally different from anything I’ve written before. I knew that I had to get out of my comfort zone to get it done, or even to get started. I was feeling kind of stuck and to get me going, my husband took me to the skate park. The mixed feeling of adrenalin, fear and happiness – I fell completely in love. So, when I spotted this floral deck from Dries van Noten on Ebay I couldn’t really resist. It’s a general reminder that I’m always happiest when in motion and in the, sometimes scary, process of learning something new.”
