One day Auri, the young granddaughter of the best rune singer and healer of Tavastia, finds a wounded man in a forest, deep within the wilderness of Finnish marshlands. When the man, viking warrior called Haakon, recovers, he founds out that he's among the evil witches, rune singers and shamans of the eastern wilderness.

Author of IRON HEARTS
Johanna Valkama


Welcome to my homepage!

I live in Nokia, Western Finland with my family. I was born in Tampere, a nearby city and the center of the county that belonged for over thousand years to the ancient region of Tavastia – a realm of Finnish witchcraft, mythical northern giants and fur traders. Today Finland is the home for the happiest people in the world.

When I'm not writing stories, I'm working in the field of marketing communications. In my free-time I train my horses and discover the breath-taking beauty and mysteries of the North. I hope to take you on an adventure with my stories!

You can find me on Facebook, Instagram and Tumbl, or feel free to send me an email to valkama.johanna.e@gmail.com or contact via LinkedIn.
