Blog about writing, literature and travel.
My name is A.J. Palm and I’m a writer, painter and martial artist. Born and raised in Sweden. I lived in Germany for four years with my parents and two brothers, then moved to the United States in 2008.
In May of 2015, I graduated from Central Michigan University with a Bachelor of Arts; my major was creative writing and journalism my minor. Shortly afterwards, I worked for The Morning Sun, a (then-local) paper in Mount Pleasant, Michigan. It was a wonderful learning experience and kind of an adventure until the company downsized and laid off people at several newspapers, including me. It’s doggy dog world out there.
Realizing that I needed additional education and a different life style, I began attending grad school at Oakland University in the fall of 2016 where I’m currently working on my master’s in communication. Truth to be told, the Big Dream is to have my poems and fictional stories published one day so that I can live as a full-time author, like J.K. Rowling or Neil Gaiman.
Plus, I love travel. I’ve been to quite a few places already – Denmark, France, Austria, Italy, Egypt, several states such as North Carolina and Maine… – but there is so much more I want to see, so many people to meet and so many different kinds of dishes to taste.
