Susanna Hynynen (b. 1987) lives in southern Finland. She has studied creative writing at the Viita Academy in Tampere and is a co-author of the Neon City fantasy series with Dess Terentjeva.
Hynynen spends her leisure time with her two dogs, reading confessional poetry and obsessing over movies – especially if they’re from the 80s!
”As a writer, I’m really fascinated by the dark spaces humans inhabit and the emotions that live in them: shame, fear, isolation and despair. For me, fantasy offers a way to transfer those emotions into monsters that can also be slain or simply understood.”
