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...

I admit, it's been a couple of hard days since 'Lost' came out. I've been struggling with the words in 'Of Darkness Born' and Henry has been standing there in the outskirts of my mind with arms crossed over his chest, glaring at me. Honestly, I have no idea why he's so...

Wow... I can't understand that I haven't written a single blog post since May. Where did June and July go? Oh... right... I've been working... Yep, that's right, I've been working like crazy to get 'Lost' out  on deadline date, and believe it or not, but I actually bea...

Lost in confusion

I'm totally lost from the world. 'Lost' has taken over my life and I feel obsessed, and addicted, searching for my next fix every second. Sometime in between all this I try to find time to hug my children and feed them and listen to them when they want...

Horror vs Love or vice versa?

This is NOT going the way I planned! Why is this suddenly a love story with elements of horror in it, and not vice versa? I don't write love stories, that's not what I do. I write horror. But... here it is. Doesn't matter how hard I try to...

What I think is one of the most beneficial things with being an author (except that you can work the hours during which you are actually most creative, which for me is the graveyard shift - quite fitting for a horror novel author, don't you think?) is that when you get...

Word counting makes me happyIt is now official, 'Lost' is half-way or two-thirds through, and I've beaten the word count of 'In the Hands of the Unknown' with two thousand already. 'Ithotu' is 73.135 words. 'Lost' is so far 75.060, and counting. Very happy.

I can also t...

About my writer's block situation...

This is my everyday working life. Add three more cats and two kids at each side of me, both yelling in my ears to get my attention, and you get the picture right... But, as for now, writer's block is a thing of the past. Getting to s...

It must be the best praise ever when your husband comes stomping down the stairs at eleven p.m., glaring angrily at you as you fix the daughter's lunch bag, and points at you, accusing you for writing such scary stuff that he can't sleep... *feeling immensely satisfied...

Part Two of 'Lost' was finished a couple of days ago. I'm shocked that it slipped my mind to tell you! At least this very important piece of news is in your hands now.

The whole thing is actually developing very smoothly and is becoming more interesting than I had expec...

I love Goodreads! What I especially love with Goodreads is this amazing group that I've found; 'Support Indie Authors'. I can't believe how fabulous these people are. I've rarely, if ever, found a group who seems so genuinely kind. I'd definitely write this down as a '...

If dreams come true - Benedict Cumberbatch would play Carl in an HBO-series based on my books. :-D And yes, I actually did dream that he played Carl, this very night, which is quite curious since I've described Carl as a young Robert Redford. Curious as I got, I had to...

I am feeling giddy and happy and humble and serene... Part one of 'Lost' is finished. 5 chapters, fifty letter sized pages, two weeks. (Three weeks if you count the rest of the forty pages I've written spread out between the rest four parts - yes, this book is going to...

Since I apparently can't attend a wedding without feeling extremely hung-over the day after, even though I didn't even drink one single drop of alcohol, I decided to do something else than writing today. Therefore I came up with this quiz, and I encourage everyone to t...

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...
