About yours truly

Hi there!

I like reading, and I especially like writing – but if you are here, you probably already know this, because these topics are what my blog is about.

What you may not know is that I was born in 1981 and live in Denmark (Northern Europe). I have other creative interests besides writing, such as drawing and photography. And I love cats. I hold a master’s degree in English studies (basically covering literature, history and social studies of English speaking countries). Writing is not exactly my main source of income,  so I also have a job as a translator and sometimes teach English classes for adults.

Taking a different approach to traditional infodumping, here are a few merit badge(r)s that sum me up nicely. Please mouseover for explanations.

    Glad to meet you, “M”. You aren’t 007’s boss by any chance, are you? Good to find your blog.

      How did you guess? No, actually I just think that a mysterious letter instead of a given name makes for such interesting/popular writers. Just take D.H., C.S., J.R.R. or J.K. for instance. Or perhaps I am deliberately not disclosing my gender. Maybe I don’t like my given name. It could also be because my cat has an M on his forehead (red tabbies do that, I’m told). Or could it be that I am just being paranoid about the Intarwebs? Who knows, I may not have a point at all. ;)
      Anyway, thank you for visiting and commenting! I’m now going to have a look at your blog. :D

    So secretive and mysterious :)

    Maybe you chose M because it’s right in the middle of the alphabet? Or maybe no one else would notice that and I have too much time on my hands for even stopping to think about that. Oh well…

      It’s a good point – and I did know that it’s the 13th letter, so maybe that is it. But that only works with the English alphabet, of course.
      Thank you for the comment! :)

    I just ran into you on (the blog discussion on atheism vs. belief) where I also posted. I think you and I might enjoy sharing opinions on our blogs. I did post a chunk of my novel on my blog, about the future history of Earth in my universe. And I do believe that atheists can be just as bigoted and dogmatic as believers. Imagine a world run by atheists – soon they would also be persecuting all those who don’t lack belief. The important thing is to maintain a rational balance – that unpopular concept of moderation. I just placed a post on the original discussion at that finishes this thought

    I hope we can stay in touch. I’m on Twitter@TermiteWriter. And I like cats, too, although I don’t have one!

      Thank you for visiting my blog! I’ll be sure to drop by yours too. :)
      I deal with the subject of religion(s) in a lot of my stories, but rarely on my blog. (Well, seeing as I did a “should sex scenes be written in fiction” post, perhaps it’s time for a “should religious issues be avoided or brought up in fiction” post as well sometime. :))
