Featured Author: Siv Maria Ottem

Siv Maria Ottem was raised in the United States and studied Journalism at a local community college in Minnesota. Her strong Norwegian roots and family ties led her to Norway where she has been living now for over 20 years. Working mostly in the travel or health industry, her passion has always been writing. Living in Norway among Trolls has inspired her to write about them and the culture surrounding them. “Secrets of the Ash Tree,” was first published as a short story in a Fantasy Anthology called Open Doors (Volume One) by Wayman Publishing. She is now hard at work writing her first book in a series called “Gods and Fairy Tales,” which is scheduled for release early next year.
    Siv now lives with her husband in southern Norway. Together they have two children, one live in mother, and two family pets. Siv also has two children from previous relationships that are currently living in the United States. For more information please visit her blog.
