About me

Hailing from the cold north of Norway, I spend my summers glaring at the midnight sun and the winters freezing my backside off. When not doing either I write, manage my health, and entertain a very spoiled cat.With a bachelor's degree as a biomedical laboratory scientist, with obscure game developing classes under the belt and a hobby artist on the side, I make the most of my days when I'm not battling chronic illness. I've had ME since I was 11 years old, meaning I am exhausted all the time and have to manage my time and energy accordingly.I write stories that take me far away from reality across distant lands.
R. A. Salvatore is the reason my books often explore themes such as mental health and trauma and overcoming them while saving the world, and remains to this day my biggest inspiration to writing with his THE LEGEND OF DRIZZT series (I even named my cat Drizzt) and THE CLERIC QUINTET.
Other authors I enjoy the works of are Alan Campbell's DEEPGATE CODEX and Hideyuki Kikuchi's VAMPIRE HUNTER D

Booklist Review
“Flying ships!? Sky pirates!? MONSTERS!? This was a highly entertaining read!! I very much enjoyed all of the action. Plus the storyline was great! If there's a second book on the way I will absolutely read it. This was a fab debut!”—Goodreads Reviewer

Perils of Sea and Sky

In the early 1700s, the discovery of anti-gravity technology led to the development of the aeroship trade. But there is one area that no sky captain dares to venture, and that is the Grey Veil: an inhospitable fog threatening the lives and sanity of all who enter.With the Veil under a strict travel ban, most level-headed pilots circumvent this treacherous place. Captain Rosanne Drackenheart, on the other hand, makes a pretty penny conducting her smuggling operation through the very edge of the mysterious fog.When she is blackmailed into searching for a lost warship, she is forced to venture into the untraversed bowels of the Veil. Rosanne must protect her crew from mystical creatures, defend against pirates gunning for her ship, and save herself from the creature known as the Forest Devil.Featuring Scandinavian myths and steampunk elements, PERILS OF SEA AND SKY is a thrilling high fantasy adventure.Add on Goodreads

The crew believes that since they had escaped the terrors of the magical mist before, they are better equipped this time to explore the islands within.They couldn’t be more wrong.Beset by shape-shifting creatures able to infiltrate dreams, Rosanne is faced with an invisible adversary forcing her to confront her fragile mind. As their journey takes them to the very heart of the Veil, hybrid monsters stalk the Red Queen, and Rosanne must once again work together with Aros to see their journey through or be lost to the Grey Veil forever like so many before them.Add it to your TBR on Goodreads!
