Who is Anja Street ?

Anja Gatu has extensive experience as a sports journalist and has worked, among other things, for Sydsvenskan in Malmö. Today she is program development manager at P4 Malmöhus.

For OLIKA, Anja has written a series of books about various sports stars, including the books about national team players Kosovare "Kosse" Asllani, Therese Sjögran and Marta Vieira da Silva, and bandy star Linnéa Larsson.

Anja about football!

"In junior high school, I started coaching my little sister's soccer team, and the idea was born that all the funny - and sometimes serious - situations we were involved in should be turned into fiction. Now I write about real stars, which is fun because I can be inspired by their experiences
and personality too.”

Anja about Flip the ball, Linnéa!

"I've always loved skating but didn't know much about bandy before I started writing, because it hardly exists here in Scania where I live. Now I know a lot, and hope that the book will inspire more people to try bandy.”
