Daughter of a high school tutor, Ölander moved to Svanshals, Sweden, at age 10 when her father became vicar there. She moved back to Linköping after her father’s death. Early in life she started to write poems and stories; she edited nearly 50 books, including three poetry collections. The others were Christian stories and novels. She also translated hymns into Swedish from English and German, and wrote some original hymns.
