I was born and raised on the Island of Zealand, Denmark. As a child I lived with my family for more than five years on the west coast of Greenland. It was probably the happiest and most exciting time of my childhood. Greenland is, and was even more so back then, a quite isolated place. Therefore having no TV most of my early years, my dad often entertained us with story reading about families settling in the New World and of explorers, such as Knud Rasmussen and Roald Amundsen. Facinated about how words and pages can take you to the most amazing places, I began writing short stories at an early age.
My sister and I used to let our imagination run wild during our nightly story telling, through wispers and under our blankets, before falling at sleep.
In my teens my story writing became more serious. I remember getting in trouble in school for writing stories during class.
A few years ago I began writing my stories in English, and have not regretted it for one second. I have really come to enjoy the flow and the variety of the English language.
Apart from my writing I also enjoy the art of photography, which I have put to use in "Minkie & Emily," that contains a number of digital art converted from photographs, as well as the cover art to both my books. A selection of my work can be found at -
