I’m currently almost halfway through my first full-length novel, Oblivion. I have been working on this since late-2019, and with the whole end-of-the-world events happening since the beginning of the year, it’s been put to the side in favor of more practical pursuits (boring). Because 2020 is the year that we say, ‘why not!’ to everything, I’ve decided to release the first chapter of my novel here for you to read.

I first heard of Greta Thunberg when the young activist walked out of her Swedish high school and organised a strike outside Swedish parliament to raise awareness around climate change.
