When did you first start writing?
I have inherited a rather creative mind from my father and so, i have always drawn and painted. I have written a couple of short stories in school but nothing major. With regards to serious writing, that came about later in life. I was deployed on my fourth tour of duty with the Danish Army and needed a getaway. I found that putting pen to paper while dreaming of times long ago, helped me relax. Once i started the whole thing just took over and i havn't stopped.
What's the story behind your latest book?
Ruric is a work of fiction set against the backdrop of actual historical events. A story of a split Kingdom on the brink of civil war. Our leading man returns from the crusades and ends up playing a vital role in the establishment of what would become the Danish Empire. I don't want to give too much away, you will have to read it for yourself.
