I had a wonderful and inspiring time at WordSpring this weekend. It was lovely to meet all the amazingly creative authors there and take part in workshops, panels, and award ceremonies. I even came to realize why it's been so hard for me to write 'Living Wall'. It’s be...

I usually try to avoid getting political, because politics is not what I want to focus on as an author. However, during the weekend, I read an article that made me drop my chin.

I have rolled my eyes at the sensitivity movement before, but I’ve kept it as my personal op...

I’m sitting at the computer, watching the rain hammering on the window and the trees’ branches dancing wildly outside. It’s PD-day and my children are at home, listening to their favourite music as they’re building train tracks and cities in the hall, while the seven f...

I have always had a longing inside me of having a garden. Ever since my early teens, I used to collect gardening books and herbal medicine books and pour through them, longing for red currants, wild strawberries, cherries, gooseberries, and all the herbs you can think...

One of the recurring questions I get is how much research goes into my books. It's a great question which I appreciate a lot.

Even though the stories are fictional, I want as much as possible to be true, which is why I spend a lot of time doing research.

'Of Darkness Bor...

I’ve been thinking about the word ‘inspiration’ lately, and what it really means to people on a deep, personal level. Words are overall a very intriguing subject, because, depending on each person’s own experiences, they mean different things to different people. What...

I have written three books and planned nine (plus a short-story-collection) in the Field Researcher Universe, but, let’s face it; I could go on and write books about them my whole life. The universe is so huge and so rich and all the people you meet in the books have a...

Music is an important part in everyone’s life. You usually have memories connected to certain songs, and when your ear catches a certain melody, feelings and images and even smells show up in your mind. It’s a wonderful medium.
               I myself have a very compl...

Every year, you have all these university students who fight to become a Star Student. You study them, you follow their work, watch their behavior, how they solve problems, how they treat obstacles in their every-day-life, how they do everything, to make sure you handp...

You know, I sort of hired this really sweet guy today. It was pretty funny when he first came into the office. He must’ve had some kind of brain fart, ‘cuz he just stopped and stared at me, and then these words fell out of his mouth: “God, you’re beautiful!” It was soo...

It’s been 62 days, 13 hours, and 49 minutes, and I still see their faces before my eyes when they die. I see their expressions when the garrotte slowly eats into their throats. I hear the roaring of the fire. I hear the screams. It’s like they’re capsuled in my ears.

It's been a very long winter and honestly I have to admit that I am very tired. You who have read this blog know that my father-in-law has been sick in cancer and a few days before Christmas he passed away. Coping with that and the funeral in France three weeks ago, an...

I don't know if I've heard any negative things about CreateSpace, but honestly, I've only had good experiences with them. Like today, for example; I sent in my newly updated version of 'Lost'. I got a message that they received it and were working on the three copies I...

Okay, we've been home in Edmonton for almost an hour now, and it feels damn good. France was an interesting experience and Port Vendres was beautiful, though terrifying to drive in, but... wow... it feels great being home and great being treated with this daily kindnes...

So this is it. It's our last night in Port Vendres. As I stand at the open French windows, looking out at the darkened landscape with the wild sky above, I feel that it all speaks to me. It is as if the small, picturesque village disappears in front of my eyes and I'm...

Sometimes I get so upset when I'm writing. I feel so much for my poor characters, and yet; what happens happens and I don't have much control over the...
