About the author
I’ve always been interested in metaphysical concepts and often sought to find evidence that someone else felt the things that I felt; that so much did not make sense about the world. I couldn’t fully put my finger on it but it was there . . . like a veil over everything. So close I could smell it and sense it, felt it with every part of me, but why couldn’t anyone else? It was a bit frustrating. I knew things as a kid people thought a kid shouldn’t know. I was so sure I could do certain things, like fly and read minds, see energy and clips of the future—mainly mine, but sometimes others—visit other planets and more, but earths experiences told me “No, it’s not possible.”

Her first book, Into a Dangerous Mind, won the award for Romantic Times Best Small Press Contemporary Paranormal for 2006.

I am a serious student of history, political, economic, military history, read copiously, often 2-3 books a week, and I have found this knowledge to be both a blessing and a curse. The blessing: I understand what I have read, and I prefer original sources. The curse: mankind is really doomed to repeat the same errors endlessly.
Do I take myself seriously? Not really, even though the characters I use in my books all have some basis in reality, I have found that the passions of youth really do mellow out as one gets older.
I do take great pride in using weapons and systems that either actually exist, or are theoretically possible. Also the combat situations I describe are as accurate as I can make them.

Born and raised in the sleepy town of Sorø, Denmark, I grew up living in my own fantasy worlds. It turned out, however, that most of these places were quite horrible and to control my nightmares and started to write stories in which I conquered the evil.
Now I believe my writing has matured to a level, where I would very much love to share what I write. Some is horrible, some violent and some might be disturbing. My primary genres are SciFi and horror but I sometimes run off to other places.
My first novella, "One Too Many" is out now, soon to be followed by my first novel, "The Tournament". "One Too Many" is a noir detective story with a twist of something else, while "The Tournament" is SciFi.

"Life is not about working your butt off for someone else - life is about following your passions and creating a fantastic life for yourself and those around you. Life is actually about LIFESTYLE."
I spent the next few years researching success and achievement, and applied the strategies to my own life. I have successfully set goals, made plans and achieved a fantastic lifestyle. So I decided to write a book revealing the strategies and formula that anyone can use to transform their life.
